If you’ve recently decided that you’re in need of some extra tuition to give you an added advantage as we enter exam season, you might well be feeling a bit daunted. After all, choosing your first tutors is an important decision, as it can affect your academic future. It can seem like a gargantuan task – especially when there are so many options to choose from. Well, if you fall into this bracket, there may be more help at hand than you think. LCF Tutors – one of the bright new firms in the private tuition market – offers a number of options which are perfect for learners searching for their first tutors. And to give you a boost, here are some useful pointers to help you on your way…
Because these are the first tutors you’ve actively sought, you may not be completely sure of exactly what to look out for, or how things work. For this reason, we’d always recommend that you plump for tutors with experience. With LCF Tutors, you’ll find countless examples of tutors who have already taken students to the heady heights of exam success. By selecting your first tutors based on their track record, you can feel confident that they will be leading you in the right direction with your learning, perhaps even suggesting lesson content and format based on what they have taught in the past.

One important thing to remember when picking your first tutors is that although you’ll need to co-ordinate your schedules somewhat, a private tutor will always attempt to work his/her timetable around you. If you work nights and they’re only available in the day, things might be a little tricky, but on the whole tutors are very flexible. For this reason, we always suggest that when looking for your first tutors you discuss tuition details (such as availability, content, price, etc.) before finalising tuition. Thanks to the unique (and very handy!) LCF Tutors site messaging system, clients are able to speak freely with tutors to ask as many questions as they need to, before committing to anything.

Wanting the very best private tutors for your money is understandable. We highly recommend shopping around for the right tutor at the right price. In fact, that’s one of the reasons LCF Tutors doesn’t charge customers a penny for using the service. They believe that private tutors can be expensive enough, without the added worry of paying to find them! LCF clients can find the highest quality tutors at rates to suit their budget, without paying for the privilege! In fact use of the LCF Tutors website is completely free of charge to all users (clients and tutors) – something which really did catch my attention and make the site stand out from the crowd. With a huge selection of tutors to suit all levels and budgets, and an easy-to-use vetting process, LCF leaves the ultimate decision of which tutor to go for up to the client, with no middle-man interference. As for pricing, clients simply pay tutors directly. Tutors accept a range of payment methods and are certainly open to negotiating their fees(!) - which is refreshing to see and makes clients feel they are getting value for money.

'Clicking' with a tutor or teacher can help immensely on the road to academic success. Most of us remember a great teacher from school or college, who we just seemed to get along with. Conversely, it’s a fact of life that some people simply don’t, which is sometimes unavoidable in a classroom environment. However, this is the last thing you want happening with one of your first tutors! Again, this is where the unique LCF Tutors messaging system comes into its own. You can open a dialogue with any tutor that you feel would be suitable and really get to know them before going ahead. During this exchange, you’ll get a good sense of who they are and how they could help you. Remember: the better your working relationship, the better your retention and long-term learning will be – which is all the more important when selecting your first tutors, because your first experience of private tuition will likely influence your future learning choices.
