Should I hire a private tutor for my high school student as he prepares for college?


Many high school students, though excited, are unnerved by the college preparation process. There are standardized exams to study for, at least one application essay to write, and an academic résumé to create in order to stay ahead of the competition. These tasks can seem overwhelming to students already pressured by school assignments and extra-curricular activities, which is why summer break between semesters, or during other school holidays, is an ideal time to tend to them. Having a private tutor who'll guide and assist can ease the load, and hiring the right one can be just what a student needs to propel him toward success. I'd be happy to be that one for your child!

Under my tutelage, students don't carry labels. Each comes to me with a clean slate. I hold no preconceived judgments about his or her abilities, regardless of parents' reports on various diagnoses. I come to know each one's individual learning style, and I adapt to it. I have yet to come across a student who has been un-teachable. It's a matter of finding a point of relation, a connection between personal interests and academia that makes sense to the student.

When searching for that connection, I ask questions. For example, if my student is a football player, I ask if he would show up on the field of a big game not having trained ahead of time, not having consulted with his coach, not having had a scrimmage on a grass turf. Invariably, the answer is, “No.” “Well,” I explain, “showing up for a college interview is a similar scenario.” If you want to win, you must prepare. It's the same for dancers. I ask them if they'd stand behind a rising curtain without having stretched, warmed up, and learned the routine. “Of course not,” they tell me. “Entering the campus is not much different from entering the stage,” I point out. Students get this kind of talk!

Yes, hiring a private tutor can prove to be an invaluable investment as your high school student prepares for college. Contact me today to get started on the path to success!
