Many years of running a successful tutoring business have taught us how to recognize strong homework tutors. They are typically — but not always — young college graduates who have done well in school themselves and now seek an opportunity to help others succeed. They quite likely are not employed in education but will have had some experience working with young people, perhaps as a teaching assistant or in the tutoring center in college, or as a sports coach.
All coaches are trained on our HomeworkCoach methodology developed in conjunction with a lifelong learning specialist, and receive ongoing supervision and skills enhancement. Coaches qualify for our Premium Plan by completing our proprietary 10-lesson Executive Function e-learning course. (See our pricing page for a description of the Premium Plan.)
We interview each homework coach, check references, and ask them to undergo a criminal background check or provide evidence of a recent check. Parents receive full credentials and talk to the tutor via telephone before the first session. In addition we guarantee the first meeting. If you have any reservations about your homework coach, we will assign you an alternate coach and you will not be expected to pay for that session.
