Most, if not all, tutoring companies offer some sort of tutoring guarantee. Kaplan has their Higher Score Guarantee, Sylvan Learning has their Sylvan Guarantee, and Princeton Review has their Guarantee. It’s always wise to read the fine print of any guarantee. Some guarantees are better than others. However, if you look closely they all have one thing in common. The expectation that the student will put in a good-faith effort.
Eureka tutoring believes that a good-faith effort is the real guarantee of success. Look to your student for a guarantee that they will put in the work because they are the ones who will determine the outcome of any tutoring program. Yes, the tutor or tutoring company you choose will make a difference, but not necessarily what you would expect. The difference lies partly due to the tutor’s knowledge and experience, but mostly due to the ability of the tutor to motivate the student. That is the key.
Only a small fraction of a student’s time is actually spent with a tutor. It’s the countless decisions students make outside of sessions either to study or goof-off that will make or break their grades. The best way to see if a tutor will motivate a student is to see how they interact in an actual tutoring session. This is why many tutoring services including Eureka Tutoring offer a free first session if the fit is not good. If it’s a good fit, there will be improvement. If not, continue the search for the right tutor and don’t worry about payment.
Past Results and Eureka Tutoring Promise
Past students have been able to increase their ACT score by three cumulative points in as little as five sessions. Other students have been able to increase their SAT scores by over 200 points in 15 sessions.
As stated above, Eureka Tutoring believes student dedication is the main determinant of any student’s score increase. Thus, the more effort students puts into their program, the more they will get out of the program.
My promise to each and every one of my students is to use all my knowledge and experience as a tutor to help them achieve their educational goals. My advantage over my competitors is my dedication to each of my students.
You have to ask yourself several questions:
Will there be one-on-one sessions or is it group tutoring?
Will it be the same tutor every time?
Does the tutor have a vested interest in the student’s success?
If needed, will the tutor help the student even outside of sessions?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, you may want to rethink your choice.
