- Motivational Skills
QUALIFICATIONS: All PVP Test Prep tutors have at least Bachelor’s degree and teaching experience. Beyond this requirement, we look for individuals who have outstanding interpersonal, communication and pedagogical skills as tutor candidates. Once a potential tutor meets these qualifications, we run an exhaustive background check and selects only those who measure up to our standard of excellence.
TRAINING: Tutor training at PVP Test Prep is extensive. After meeting initial requirements, tutors must train for between 30 and 100 hours for each test they will teach. During this time, they are taught our proprietary teaching methods and strategies, observe tutoring sessions, analyze and annotate all relevant texts, tests and other publications. Finally, they must complete a certification interview with a PVP Test Prep Senior Staffer. This process ensures that each and every PVP Test Prep tutor meets our strict standards of educational excellence.
EXPERIENCE: Just as important as our hiring and training policies are our tutor retention efforts. In this area, PVP Test Prep has no equal. PVP Test Prep provides tutors with an environment in which they can continue to pursue their own pursuit of personal excellence, without many of the headaches associated with traditional teaching or those associated with in-home tutoring (travel, etc.) As a result, we are able to attract and retain the best tutors in the area.
