Better tutors, better results.
"Everyone who remembers his own educational experience remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the kingpin of the educational situation."
WHAT MAKES AN ULTITUTOR?
Every UltiTutor tutor graduated from a top university, has significant teaching and tutoring experience, and has recently scored in the top 1% on subject exams in the tests they teach. Once tutors meet these requirements, they must then undergo a rigorous interview process to prove their competence and skill as top-notch educators.
Candidates are trained to implement the UltiTutor curriculum in the most effective, interactive way possible. Each tutor must pass subject examination, master the material, technology, and operational procedures, as well as present a final mock lesson to the Instructional Team for review. We demand that our tutors be articulate and energetic in order to guarantee an engaging, productive lesson each and every time.
As part of the team, UltiTutor tutors continually collaborate with the Department of Instruction to ensure exceptional performance. UltiTutor directors meet with every tutor one-on-one, virtually sit in on lessons, and help tutors tailor our customized curricula to meet specific student needs. Ongoing support for tutors, along with further development of their skills and teaching methods, is essential to keeping our tutor team strong, all the while making certain that every UltiTutor student is learning to the highest possible standard.
