It is always difficult to find the best Coaching Centres or Private Tutors. Private tutoring can be the best way to boost learning, but finding the right person for the job is crucial.
While looking for a good coaching institute, one should not only focus on cracking the entrance exam but also look at other facilities like Group Discussion, Personal Interview and Essay writing session. Ask as many relevant questions as you can. It’s important. After all, you are not only slogging it out to prepare well for the test but also paying a good amount of money to the coaching centre! Don’t be confused about how to select the right coaching centre.
Here are 5 tips that would help you judge the correct option for yourself:
Identify the purpose of studying
Before finding a good tutor, you need to understand what you want, your goal clearly, and what you want to achieve? School tests — just one way to test student’s knowledge, not the perfect one. “To pass through exams” may be an intermediate result that you want to have, but not a good final goal.
Whatever your goal is, try to be specific when reaching out to institutes or tutors. Each one will have different skills and will be able to help in different areas. Knowing what you want beforehand helps you save time finding the right teacher becomes easier to find a perfect tutor if you have the goal. For example, if you want to have an 85 in the math exam, your score is 70. It becomes certain to look for the tutor who is the best choice for this specific purpose, who has experience in this area, and not just a “good mathematics teacher.”
Take the time to research and analysis
You can start with a google search of “tutor” or “coaching centre,” Click on the first link and leave a request there. You even will be instantly contacted by a teacher or an institute representative. But in this case, you will not be sure whether he has the adequate requirements you’re looking for. How good the teacher or institute is, and so on. You can’t even easily conclude. Therefore, it becomes prominent to conduct a small research and analysis.
Examine at least 5 different websites that services and gives information about the coaching institute. View profiles read the principles of selecting teachers, check the reviews of the websites, check the reviews of the tutors, check their experience, education background and check the student feedback if there are any. Check forums, blogs, and social networks to gather as much information as you can for analysis. Check out how other people were looking for tutors, what parameters they chose the institute, how they interacted, and the result.
Read all the reviews, but don’t have blind faith in them
A good tutor and an institute, especially those who have been teaching for a long time, should have many good reviews. But at the same time, good reviews don’t guarantee that they will fit you and your needs—a few tips on how to evaluate teachers:-Do not consider contacting those with many bad reviews. Anyway, 1-2 negative feedbacks with many positive reviews should not scare you. Any institute representative or a teacher can be in a situation when the interaction with the students or their parents has not worked because of some reason.-
The reviews on the websites of the companies searching for tutors, mostly real — most companies value their reputation. But if the tutor owns a website or his social network account, there might be only good reviews that may not reflect reality.-You can understand the tutor’s speciality. If you need training for USMLE and most of the comments are from students who passed any other medical exam, probably this tutor is not your best choice, even if all the reviews are positive.-Also, there might be other evidence of qualification of teachers. Some companies conduct the preliminary selection of all tutors or say that they do it. In this case, contact the company and ask for details on the selection methodology — if they can’t clearly answer, they don’t do it.
Look for tutors that specialize exactly in the subject you need them to
How to understand that the teacher or Coaching Institute specializes in what exactly you need? Read reviews and, most importantly, ask the tutor for all details during the preliminary telephone conversation. It is important to ask how many different subjects he/she teaches and how many students has. It is advisable to do it before you tell the purpose of the studying. So that the teacher will not be able to customize the story for your query. The best option is to find a tutor or Coaching Institute that has already successfully prepared students for the same reasons as yours. And preferably has such students now. If the tutor is a student or recent graduate, ask about his own achievements too. They should be significant and relevant to the subject he tutors.
Do not overestimate the formal regalia of the tutor
Many people think that the more experienced, honoured and awarded tutor is, the better. But this is not always the case. It is important to understand that in most cases, there is no need for an award-winning teacher. Suppose you need to pass the exam by 70-80 points, no need to search for professors and doctors. It is enough to find a good school teacher or a graduate student with the experience of preparing for the exam. Besides, it would be much cheaper.
In a world where the education industry is slowly turning into a business, even the coaching institutes are not left far behind. The quality of teaching is moderate to low, and the number of students is so high that it gets practically impossible to focus on every child in the class. With the advancement in technology, digital education has begun a revolution for teachers, parents, and students. With so many options available, the wrong coaching institute can make or break your career. Select a tutor only after you have done all these steps. And you will have higher chances to find a perfect tutor for you.
