Choosing a tutor is not as easy as it sounds. Horror stories abound of tutors who charge the unknowing client more than they should or of teachers who fake their credentials. Parents who want to avoid these unfortunate incidents have turned to reputable tutorial centers for help. By making this simple decision, parents cut down on the hassle of checking each prospective tutor’s background and credentials. Here are the qualities you should look for in a tutorial center.
It must have a big pool of experts. Where did their teachers graduate? Ahead Tutorial and Review Center sources its employees from the top the country’s top three universities, University of the Philippines, Ateneo de Manila University, and De La Salle University. They undergo an intensive screening process, which includes a battery of academic exams before they qualify as tutors and review lecturers. Rossana L. Llenado, founder of Ahead Tutorial and Review Center, believes that this is what makes AHEAD the number one choice of parents when it comes to tutorial centers.
It must have a good track record. Ahead is the only review and tutorial center that publishes a consistently high rate of passers for the college entrance exam.
Its teaching style and surroundings must be conducive to learning. Ideally, the tutors must be friendly and young to facilitate easy rapport with their students. “Students can easily absorb learning when the experience is pleasant and when they’re having fun,” says Llenado.
It must be accessible. AHEAD centers are located all over the metropolis with branches inside popular malls like Robinsons Galleria in Ortigas and Robinsons Place Lipa in Batangas, making it easier for mall-loving kids to get to.
It must be flexible to your needs. AHEAD listens to the parents input. AHEAD is very flexible when it comes to the demands of the parents. I have been to so many other tutorial centers but even my sons like it here. They like their tutors, and I think that, that is one reason why my sons have improved academically, says Mrs. Uychico, wife of Jong Uychico.
