When hiring a tutor ask to see proof of their education, training and experience. Good tutors have a professional web page with pictures, certificates and experience listed and usually have a resume or professional teaching portfolio available to show prospective students.

When hiring a tutor ask how the tutor will test your current skills. Ask how the teaching materials will be used. Ask what teaching materials will be used. Ask if and how skills testing will occur. Ask what teaching methods will be used. Ask if homework is assigned.

Some students want to study with their friends. Ask the tutor if a small group can be taught at the same or special price. With conversation based programs the small group forms can offer excellent learning and practice sessions and better prices.

Hiring a tutor is like hiring an employee. There are lots of tutors with different prices and levels of education, teacher training and work experience.

Hire a tutor that will help you achieve your goal.
