What makes our tutors Superb?
What qualifies our tutors as Superb?
Being a Superb tutor means much more than high grades and graduating with honors; it also means expert subject knowledge, effective teaching styles, and professionalism. Superb Tutors is unique as a tutoring company because we always meet our tutors face-to-face. Though this may seem obvious beyond question, its not standard practice among tutoring services. Be sure your tutor meets all you expectations by getting a thoroughly evaluated and endorsed Superb tutor.
The selection process:
1) Excellent university grades and test scores
GPAs alone cannot reveal the depth of a tutor's knowledge. We review all their transcripts to indentify which subjects they excelled in and enjoyed the most. We also review their SAT, GRE, and high school Advanced Placement test scores. This can indicate how well the tutor understands the test-taking process and whether they can share that skill with other students.
2) Natural ability to clearly explain material
Successful tutoring has as much to do with the ability to explain material effectively as it does with understanding the material. All tutors interested in joining Superb undergo mock tutoring scenarios to demonstrate their ability to breakdown complicated material and present it at the student's level of understanding.
3) Dynamic and engaging personality
We take our standard of quality and excellence very seriously and look for tutoring candidates with an innate sense of professionalism, dynamic energy, experience, and developed life skills. Tutors often serve as role models to their students and we know the difference a powerful role model can make on a students direction and self-motivation.
4) Experience and recommendations
We look for tutors with experience as college TAs, peer mentors, and previous group and private tutors. We also know that other professional experiences can help build skills needed to engage students, and we look for those kinds of experiences. Of course, all our tutors come highly recommended by past employers, students, and professors.
