How to find the best tutors in Tiffin, OH

At Academic Coaching Specialists, we strive to help students find what it takes to help them be successful. In just a few simple steps, we will show you how to find the best tutors in Tiffin, OH. 

1. First, identify experts in the area. Look for companies that specialize in matching the right credentials and experience with what you are looking for. Avoid sites that allow you to “shop” for a tutor like a dating service. Tutors should be selected because of their skills and abilities to help your student, not because of a professional looking headshot. 

2. Be wary of tutors who guarantee an “A”. Tutoring is a process, and it takes varying amounts of time to get your son or daughter to see real improvement. Success is a process and there will be ups and downs. 

3. Look for a good fit. You want to make sure there is chemistry between your teen and their tutor. No one wants to try to learn material that is difficult from someone that they have nothing in common with. The interactions should be pleasant, and your student should never dread going. That is a tell-tale sign that things are not in alignment.

4. You should not have to chase the tutor for feedback. A good tutor will offer feedback after each session. Look for constructive criticism only, never any derogatory language or remarks. They should give the student and/or you some actionable items that can be worked on between sessions to maximize improvements. The tutor should always praise the student for efforts that are being seen.

5. The tutor should communicate openly and effectively with both you and your child. There should be complete transparency between the student, the tutor, and the parents. Determine how you will be in contact with each other at the very beginning so there are no questions or confusion that can cause unnecessary frustrations.

6. Price is important. Cheap tutors produce cheap results. Too expensive and they may not live up to what they promise and/or your expectations. A good price point ensures a fair situation for both the tutor and the family.

Academic Coaching as An Alternative to Tutoring

If you find your teen struggles with organization and time management, an academic coach may be more in line with what you are seeking. An academic coach is a mentor who communicates weekly with your son or daughter, to walk them through the ins and outs of academic life. They will help them to start thinking more proactively, planning well, and following through. No more forgotten assignments or waiting until the last minute to get something done. 

An Academic Coach from ACS will work with your student to help them solve the mystery of how other students seem to get things done! Often we hear students say they feel like they just missed information somehow and everyone else knows how to do something but they don’t. The coach works to ensure they will not miss assignments and that they will be turned in on time-every time!
