What are the 4 Es in Every Successful Tutor-Student Relationship
Over the past two or three weeks I’ve been asked the same sort of questions during the initial consultation and assessment with prospective students and their parents. Interestingly, the questions and concerns seem to be centered around the same notions…and they are totally understandable!
Basically, they all come down to these two questions:
“What do you do?” and “How do you do it?”
Or, in even plainer English…and using a bit of today’s jargon:
“What is your secret sauce?”
Without giving away too much, I believe this video will answer these questions. Additionally, I hope this video will help other prospective students and their parents know what to look for when hiring the right tutor!
The Right Tutor
Who is the right tutor?
The 4 Es!
- Experience – Is the prospective tutor a full-time professional or a part-timer?
- Empathy – Does the prospective tutor relate well to your son or daughter?
- Expertise – Is the prospective tutor a specialist with an established track record working with students with your child’s needs?
- Excellence – Does the prospective tutor get results…can they point to specific examples?
If the prospective tutor can answer the questions related to The 4 Es to your complete satisfaction, then you are well on your way to establishing a solid relationship and achieving an excellent result.
If not…keep looking!
