Drawing up guidelines for hiring and working with a tutor



Before you go out to hire a tutor, it is a good idea to have some guidelines in place for yourself, so that you know what kind of tutor you want are are looking for.

  Follow these steps to draw up guidelines for hiring and working with a tutor:
  1. Decide whether it is advisable to hire a man or a woman

    Depending on the cultural framework you are learning in, it might be advisable to hire a tutor of the same sex as you.

  2. Decide how much time per week you would like to work with the tutor.
  3. Decide how much money you are willing to pay per hour or session.
  4. Decide whether you want the tutor to follow a particular book or course you have chosen or whether you want the tutor to make up the course of study for you.
  5. Decide on the period of time to propose to the tutor for working together.

    It is best not to commit yourself to a long contract with a tutor until you see how it well you can work together.
