Tutoring for Exam preparation


Language exams tend to be stressful and challenging, especially when it comes to foreign languages in the school, college or university. When students have to prepare for their exams, sometimes they have less time to master the material on their own and make sure they don’t have any gaps or didn’t miss anything important. This usually leads to lack of confidence and all other kinds of awkward situations during the exams, and that is unwanted by both students and their teachers. That’s why tutor’s help is advised during these preparations — getting through the necessary material is faster, easier and more fun if you have guidance from someone who has extensive knowledge of the language. It’s a good practice, especially if the material is challenging and requires more time and effort than one can afford to spend.


What do you need to do first?


In order to find a suitable tutor for this task, you need to prepare some information and provide it to the tutor. This is important, because the success of these lessons depends on it. This includes:

  1. Information regarding the exam: the language you’re learning, your native language and the subject (or subjects) of the upcoming exam(s);
  2. Plans of your studies for this semester or year and what is expected from the exam (topics, questions, etc);
  3. A clear deadline — it will determine the pace of your studies;
  4. Student’s current understanding of the material — if you’re having trouble with something, it’s better to inform about it right away, since it’ll be a good chance to solve this issue and prepare yourself;
  5. Student’s age — some tutors are more efficient when they’re tutoring students of specific age. Usually this means they have developed their methods of tutoring, but they are usually less efficient or don’t work at all if they’re tutoring people who are outside of the target age group.
  6. Once you have this information, you can start your search for a tutor. Remember, this information is important, and if you should provide it before you’ve made your decision. Be prepared to answer additional questions too — after all, it’s in your best interest to find a tutor who’ll be most efficient at this task.

How to find a suitable tutor?


Before you’ll make your final decision, you need to go over the information you’ve provided and compare it to what the tutor has to offer. There are several things you need to keep in mind:

  • Don’t settle for the first tutor who seems appealing. It’s easier to write an appealing CV than doing the job professionally. That’s why you should look for references and customer feedback, and if you can’t find any, ask whether it’s possible to contact their previous customers and ask them personally;
  • Compare your information to the tutor’s professional experience and methods. For example, if the potential tutor spent most of their career teaching people way above or below your age, chances are, they’ll not be as efficient as a tutor who taught students of your age group;
  • If you have an extreme deadline, you’ll need a very experienced tutor, especially the one who has experience of working under stress and dealing with extreme deadlines. Otherwise you might find the results less satisfying than expected;
  • Remember — high rates don’t necessarily mean higher quality. It’s better to settle for an affordable, yet professional tutor, than spending more than you can afford and hoping to get better results this way.

With this information in your hands, the process of finding a tutor should be easier, as long as you keep following these steps and put enough thought into your final decision.
