Not All Tutors Are the Same
By Professor Abe Korn
Tutoring is not a product but a service. Each tutor is unique in the manner in which they present the subject material to the client. If you tried one tutor and are not pleased with his or her services, do not give up hope. Your best bet is to keep trying other tutors until you find the right one. You might get lucky on your first try or it might take a few tries with different tutors to finally find the right one. However, you might be thinking that trying many tutors might cost you a small fortunate until you find the right one.
My suggestion in finding that right tutor is to work with tutors who offer some type of money back guarantee. I always tell the customer that if he or she is not happy with my services, I will gladly refund the money back to them. Lucky, in over twenty-five years of tutoring, I never had to refund anyone back. However, I am more than willing to refund the tutoring fee if a client is unhappy with my services. Thus, you should always look for a tutor that offers this type of guarantee. This way, if the first tutor you work with is not right for you, you do not end up wasting your money. A good tutor will be more than happy to refund the money if the client did not receive any value from the tutoring.
Another suggestion is to ask the tutor if he or she will be willing to provide a free 10 to 15 minute trial run. This way you can actually try out the services for free and make a decision afterwards. Once again, a good tutor should have no problem in providing a potential client with a free trial of his or her services. So, try to pick a tutor that offers either a free trial or a money back guarantee if possible.
