We at Tutoring for Success know that a great student starts with great teaching, which is why we put all of our applicants through a rigorous selection process, including:
• Background checks
• Reference checks
• Personal interviews
In addition, we seek highly motivated, well educated, friendly tutors to provide the services that students in the Washington metro area need. Our selection process and our more personalized approached to tutoring are why clients return to use our services year after year, and why we’re committed to being the best full service tutoring company for residents of Washington, DC, Northern VA, and Maryland.
• We only hire tutors with at least a four-year degree and significant teaching and tutoring experience. It can’t be stressed enough that these qualities are fundamental when it comes to offering services that students can rely on.
• Many of our tutors are full time teachers or professors who use tutoring to supplement their income, sharpen their teaching skills, and help students that need it the most.
• Some tutors are retired teachers who have the experience and patience necessary, and want to continue to help students meet their education goals.
• Some of our tutors are specialists in their fields, including tutors who hold Master’s and Doctorate degrees. From engineers, to physicists, to M.D.s, grade school teachers, lawyers, and more, the staff at Tutoring for Success can work with a variety of students on a variety of subjects, all at a professional tutoring level that current educational standards demand.
It isn’t enough to just fill out a resume and a questionnaire; we conduct personal interviews with each and every tutor to determine whether or not they will be the right match for our company . While other tutoring companies may rely on spreadsheets and checklists, we take the time to get to know our tutors, because we want them to take the time to get to know their students. We hire dynamic, articulate, and engaging tutors who understand their subjects and know how to communicate them well. Our students’ success is the foundation for our service. Because we pay our tutoring professionals higher rates than many of our competitors, we are able to recruit top tutors.
Most tutoring companies will simply pair tutors with students based on subject alone. When Tutoring for Success speaks with clients, we try to make sure that they understand our entire process. We also look at each student’s individual goals, educational needs, and learning styles, and pair our tutors with those students accordingly.
There will never be a question of who your tutor is, or what their qualifications are. Before signing a contract, you will be able to speak with your tutor personally, and learn more about what he or she can bring into the picture. Speaking with a live person can make all the difference when you’re making an important decision about a student’s future, which is why we hand-pick and recommend tutors based on personalized needs.
Once we’ve made a match, our administrative staff continues to keep in touch, using the feedback that we get from students and parents, and continues to provide high quality educational and tutoring services. If you’ve ever worked with a tutoring company before, and felt like a file number instead of a person, then you will find Tutoring for Success to be a new and engaging experience.
