EXPERIENCE: An ACT Tutor should have experience taking the ACT Test. This test is very different than the typical tests students take and is time-restricted. This is frustrating for most students and parents! An ACT tutor should personally take the ACT test every year.
GOOD COMMUNICATION: Make sure your student has a good rapport with the tutor. Learning can - and should - be FUN! A tutor should find out what the student is interested in, discover their strengths and weaknesses, and be able to provide instruction that engages and makes learning FUN! Additionally, a tutor should be open to your feedback and be available to the student, parents, and teachers.
Parents + Teachers + Tutors = A Great Support System!
FLEXIBILITY: A tutor who truly cares about your student's progress will try to be available for out-of-class questions.
CREATIVITY: No student learns in the same way or at the same speed, so matching ability with progress is important. The student should be challenged, not frustrated.
PERSONALITY: A tutor will not only instruct on the inner workings of a particular subject; they will also motivate and inspire students. They should be able to adapt the lessons to meet each student's level and needs. A good sense of humor is always a plus - sessions can be as fun as they are informative.
POSITIVE ATTITUDE: Part of a tutor's job is to encourage students. Every person has a different set of strengths and weaknesses. A tutor will boost student's confidence and help them overcome their challenges. Every tutoring session should end on a positive note.
REFERENCES: A tutor will be able to provide you with references of past students and their parents.
