Do trained and qualified tutors bring better results than untrained tutors?

When you are buying a new piece of tech, or holiday, or car, or apartment, you will carefully consider the benefits the cost will bring to you. If you're getting a good return in terms of benefit, you will be happy with the cost.

Some parents, when they are choosing a tutor, only think about the cost and convince themselves that all tutors are the same and the benefits are the same.

In this blog, we want to clarify for parents and students the difference between engaging a qualified and experienced tutor and a ‘tutor’ who says they can teach you or your child.

We will demonstrate that trained and qualified tutors bring better benefits than untrained tutors.

Here are eight main differences between trained and qualified tutors and untrained tutors:

  1. Content Expertise: Trained and qualified tutors possess a higher level of expertise in the subjects they teach. They have undergone formal training or education in their respective fields, enabling them to provide more accurate and comprehensive explanations and guidance.

  2. Assessment Skills: Trained and qualified tutors are proficient in assessing learners’ abilities, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, and designing appropriate learning plans to address their needs. They use various assessment tools and techniques to evaluate progress effectively.

  3. Pedagogical Knowledge: Trained and qualified tutors have a deep understanding of pedagogical theories, learning styles, and instructional strategies. They are equipped with techniques to adapt their teaching methods to the diverse needs of learners.
