Best home tutor provider in Pune

Getting a home tutor provider in Pune is easy nowadays, there are so many home tutors in Pune available to provide freelancing tutoring services. To get a tutor parents just have to fill up an inquiry form on tutor provider’s website and will get a tutor at doorstep. So they think as a parent their responsibility to hire a good home tutor completed.This is what parents think while engaging a personal tutor for their kids. But is that enough because most of the time parents appoint a home tutor for better exam results . We are not telling hiring a tutor will not help to improve student’s exam performance but only depends on tutor is not the complete thing. Most of the time when we receive inquiries for the tutor , parents ask a simple question to us , “Is tutor is able to improve our child?” and our answer is “no”. Because a single tutor can not make your child to get better scores in exam. To improve kids result , we have to work on so many weak areas all together.

Hiring a tutor can help student to understand concept one more time or finish remaining portion, but what about student weaknesses? If we go in depth we find that most of time student losses marks because of weaknesses and other examination skills. Child already know the concept , but he does not know how to write the concept in exam, how to explain it, how to manage time for attempting each question etc. In addition to that , few students also have exam fear, problem with confidence, memory loss at the time of exam due to nervousness etc. So improving the result one should take care about all this aspects and weak areas of student. Before hiring a tutor one should understand student but unfortunately most of the tutor provider never do that, there work is simply engaging a tutor just like agencies arranging a maid, Tutor provider or other tutoring website only care about the commission they are getting from matching a tutor. They never understand one demo class is not enough for parents to find out about tutor.In first demo, parents can find only few things such as communication skills of tutor, subject knowledge and behavior of tutor with kids. But finding capability of tutor is not possible in one single demo class.

So what’s next , is that parents stop to hire a tutor or stop to hire a tutor from tutor provider ? The answer again is no. In Spite of that before hiring a tutor , parents should know about their kids. They should have a checklist of student’s weak areas. So while engaging a personal tutor they can discuss the same. This will help parents to know much about home tutor. It also help parents to find out tutor capabilities. Whereas at Sonlinetutor.com , we take this responsibility from parents. We provide one free counseling session before starting any tuition. Our whole counselling session is divided into two parts – diagnostic test and discussion round. First of all student has to take a diagnostic test, its check parameter i.e. reading skills , writing skills, English grammar, Mathematics skills etc. Through it a detailed report is generated. At second step our Councillor do a short discussion with parents and student. This discussion consist of questions regarding student’s other behavior problem , issue with any motor skills, exam fear , confidence issue, nervousness or any other personal issues which can be solve for student’s progress. At the end we give a complete report to parents and students so they can easily find out the areas to work for. It is not the end , it is just starting of our tutoring process.A sample report can be downloaded from here.

In this process our next step is to find a tutor which can help to solve problems and improve student altogether. We already know a part time tutor can not do all this , his work is simple, come to your home and teach. But to solve this issue we already incorporate mentors with each student. Here mentor’s responsibility is to take care week by week child’s progress and generate a report which deliver to parents and tutor every week. In addition to that mentor also take care about customized teaching plans and methodologies to help students. This customized teaching plans includes visual graphics , animation, infographics , charts , videos, notes etc. We always include different method of teaching and suggest them to tutor for particular student. This are simple out of track methods to teach and useful for student’s growth. We find majority of students are not able to figure out complex concepts from traditional teaching methods but with the help of visuals , animations and video, student can easily learn this concepts and able to memorize for long time. But this trick not work well with all the students. For example, we had a student from class 8th cbse. He was not able to understand the concept from traditional teaching methods but his parent thought that tutor was not good enough to explain the concept and whenever he got less marks , they change the tutor. Finally they got tired from this process and approach Sonlinetutor.com for help. While counselling we find out that student was not able to create an image of the concept in his mind which make him difficult to remember and understand it for long time. For first instance we suggested to change traditional teaching method and included visuals and animations for teaching but still he was not improving. Finally after long discussion with our experts we came up with a solution to create customize game for him. This game is so simple, we divide each concepts into segments and dedicate a missing word puzzle for each segment. In starting he had to fill up missing words by seeing the book and later on he had to do it by his own. Slowly he was able to remember the complete concept and after that he did not need to check book to solve puzzle. This strategy might not work for all students but work well for him. We designed many more puzzles according to student need.

In other hand if a student is weak in maths than we define some other strategy to work out. e.g. we got a student from Singapore, she was equivalent to Indian class 9th student. In counseling we determined that she already knew each and every concept but she was losing here marks for silly mistakes. She always made silly mistakes and got different answer than desire , which results in less marks in maths. She got frustrated from this problem even though she knew the points where she was doing mistakes but not able to resolve it. After assessment we suggested and implemented a strategy to take customized weekly test for her. This customized weekly tests consist questions where she was doing mistakes. At each week we include this concepts with other concepts which she was learning during the week. We discuss this test results and mistakes every week with her. Slowly we found her mind acknowledge the points where she was doing mistakes and once those concepts come into test papers her mind put extra care for solving those concepts. This help her to avoid silly mistakes for particular concepts. But later on we determine that student adopted this method and whenever she found difficulty for a concept like this she implement the same strategy by own and now her results got improved day by day. Later on she secured A+ in maths. The discussion go on because we have so many strategies to discuss which we implemented for student growth.

In this concept , we forget to discuss about our tutor selection. So how we select a tutor differently than other tutor provider or home tutor site. In the process of selection we always discuss about student’s current situations with tutor. Tutor before going for demo know each and everything about student, which make easier for them self to know from where to start and what aspects to be cover while tutoring. To support tutoring session we provide study material, notes, lesson plans etc. In short our tutors occupy with all the tools required to teach particular student.

Why parents should hire a home tutor ?

At school, It is very difficult to understand each and every concept. As we know schools are getting crowded day by day and it is impossible for school teachers to take care for individual student’s academic growth . In school, teachers only focus is to complete the syllabus in time. Due to this students have a tendency to lose enthusiasm for studies. This gap results in poor performance in exams.. You can deal with this issue by going for one to one home tutoring  for your children. We discuss few parameters which can help you to find out a best home tutor for your kid.

 

Subject proficiency

Is test papers at school measure student’s intelligence ?

According to Sonlinetutor.com founder Aashish Jain, the answer is No. What he think about current test and evaluation system we discuss in this post.

Test and current evolution systems are just measure your knowledge for the particular time period. One day, you may have a friendly discussion with a companion and come to know you’re still battling with Algebra II. School and grades are exactly what you written in exam paper, not what you know.

In other hand,  They decide your memory not your knowledge. The tests you are given in school, decide how great you are at recollecting and memorizing content and facts , not how shrewd you are. I am very shrewd myself and I choose what my evaluations resemble. On the off chance that I am intrigued I will put forth a concentrated effort and get great results and grades. On the flip side if I think it is an exercise in futility I will fail it.

Tests don’t test how savvy you are. They just test what material you can recall, similar to a memory test. Different tests like the SAT just test how great you are at taking that particular test.

Our present tutoring framework are defective on the grounds that they were intended to be founded on something many refer to as the Prussian instruction framework which was intended to create assembly line laborers, or individuals who are great at taking after headings and not really great at learning.

How great you are in school has nothing to do with insight, just with how great you are for complying your teachers and parents. One final thing regardless of what feedback you get from instructors or guardians, about them contrasting you with others or saying that evaluations will decide your destiny is totally wrong.

Sonlinetutor.com basically conduct weekly test for students not to pressurize them but we use weekly test tool as an opportunity for students. Through weekly test our mentors understand the weak areas of their subjects. Afterwards our mentor discusses test reports with tutors and student so they can understand where to start form and in which area to put more efforts. We use tests as feedback system not to tell parents that your child is weak.

We provide home tutors in Pune and mentors to improve student result.

What is the best source for private online tutoring?

There are various websites who offer online tutoring, but I recommend Sonlinetutor.com. People may think why I am so biased for my website where as various service provider available across the globe. In current situation, there are very less number of qualified and experience tutors available at physical locations and if there are availability of experience tutors, they are not affordable for everyone. Whereas we are committed to provide affordable, experience and qualified tutors across the globe. We wanted to build a platform which helps students to find out best online tutor in affordable prices.

What are the best features of sonlinetutor.com

Quality check for tutors: We always hire tutors from top universities and colleges. Apart from that we prefer teachers who have prior experience of tutoring. In most cases our tutors are having 5+ of teaching experience and always have expertise in their subjects. Experience tutors not only having subject knowledge but also can deal with various student’s problems like exam fear, time limits issues, confidence etc.

Training and prior check: To ensure teaching quality, our experts take demo session for each and every tutor with an interview round. Afterwards we provide free training for our tutors. Trained tutors help student to achieve desired grades.

Affordability : In term of price we are the cheapest online tutoring provider in the world. But it does not mean that we sacrifice with quality of teacher. The reason behind the affordability is the hiring source. Majority of our tutors are coming from developing countries, where education system is good compare to other countries. In this countries tutors are hired on monthly bases, not on the basis of hourly rates. Which results in lower tuition fee.

This are the few features which differentiate us from others. We are offering free demo session as well. If someone would like to hire an online tutor can simply what’s app us on +918446441611.
