What to ask a prospective physics tutor
When assessing whether a tutor is a good fit for your child, consider asking these questions:1. When is the last time you tutored someone [my age/my child's age] in physics?
2. How do you approach teaching physics?
3. How do you cope with students' anxiety?
4. What are your science and education credentials?
5. Why do you enjoy physics? Are you able to communicate your enthusiasm to students?
and, if it works out...
6. WHEN CAN WE GET STARTED? :)
How much will one-on-one help cost?
Depending on where you get help, prices range dramatically. But tutoring physics is a specific skill set: you need someone with specific expertise in both science and one-on-one teaching.
If the cost is too high, peer tutors are another possibility. You may be able to find a peer to help you, for example, with sciences while you help him or her with math. You could also join a peer study group.
