Personal teacher/Tutor

/Parents often hire personal teachers for their child. The reasons is vary: parents do not have enough time for their child or do not know how to motivate the child, child  has little success because the lazy, the child has poor performance for some subjects for which no preference ....
Whatever the reason, parents must choice tutor very careful. Whether we like it or not, private teacher comes into our house and can bring more harm than good.

If you do not have enough time for your child, it is best to hire a teacher for a day learning. Don't look teachers in the advertising. Ask your friends, parents of  your child’s  friends, teacher at school ... He or she,  primarily, must  be a person who is a good pedagogue, positive and optimistic, it is desirable to have children, it is preferable that these children showed the results of proper education .
A bit of time you spend with your child, use for socializing and conversation. You need to know whether the child likes to work with the tutor, how to learn, about what they were discussing, as a teacher in the mood, is he unhappy with something in the life and this is transferred to the child.
And remember, personal teacher must not represent opposing methods and attitudes of yours. You are the parent, you are responsible for your child, you  love your child!
If the tutor has objections to your methods, attitudes and behavior , he needs to talk to you, not to the child. Therefore, please be in touch with the tutor and synchronize your relationship with your child.
If you have “lost” communication with your child or the child is lazy, it is much more useful to consult a psychologist. You ,not a child. The first step towards solving the problem is that parents find their mistakes in the bringing up of their children. Remember, a child did not bring up himself, only parent is responsible for it .
When a child has problem to understand the material only for some subjects, encourage him to seek help from  teachers at and friends. If the problem persists, it is reasonable to engage the personal teacher.Parent must follow this work , too, to be informed of how these classes take place and how the child progressed. The task of the personal teacher ,in this case, is that student approached the matter, to be encouraged to work harder to catch up and facilitate the monitoring of regular classes at school.
Hiring a tutor can help a lot, but can be more harmful.It is help only when needed to compensate some shortcomings in knowledge, but ,sometame, the students less follow teaching in school by relying on private teachers, do not investigate and come to conclusions by themselves , as the personal teacher  works for them. It is harmful.
Believe me! I am a private teacher.

Home tutoring your child on your own is a great method of making dure that he/she is learning. If you have the luxury of time, this is just perfect but if you're working and quite busy, tutoring clubs like long island private tutoring can also teach your child the best that you can give.

Not carefully choosing your child's tutor is no different from letting your child be taught in school with whoever teacher is (competitive or not) assigned on their class. At least in school, you are somewhat confident that the teachers are scrutinized by the school administrators prior to attending your child's class. Now in a home-school or home-tutoring setting, you are all in charge of deciding whether the tutor you'll let in is capable or not. Daniele @ C2Educate.com

While hiring a private teacher, it is important to verify the teaching qualification and an up to date CRB check.

Great article, thanks! For parents out there who decide to hire a private tutor, it is a must that you know the most important qualities/characteristics that make a great tutor. Even if the tutor is really good in the subject he/she teaches, but lacks the right qualities, your child will not benefit at all. I know this because I have hired tutors in the past who weren’t able to help my kids. So now, whenever I need to hire Vancouver tutors, I make sure that I get them from a highly respectable agency.
