Tutors come in many shapes and sizes. There are multiple types of tutors, including private tutors, academic coaching, student-to-student (or peer) tutoring, online tutoring, and in-person (or home) tutoring. Private tutoring is when a tutor is hired by a student or a student’s family to teach specific subjects to the student or a group of students. The philosophies vary greatly. One tutor may only speak when the student needs to ask a question, and a different one may prepare and run the entire session 補經濟 comprehensively. The tutors that are best for the students are the tutors that have a philosophy that aligns with the student. If a student learns best by having a concept repeatedly spoken to them, they would not work well with a tutor that has laissez-faire attitude. The best method for tutors to find the right student is to be open immediately. Tutors should openly express their abilities and styles, so the student can best assess an appropriate fit. Students should be aware of reviews or feedback pertaining to the tutor. Student should also be aware of what they need from a tutor and what to request of them.
