What Makes a C2 Tutor Great?
More Than Just a Tutor
C2 tutors are more than just tutors – they are mentors who become an important part of a student’s support system. C2 specializes in hiring exceptional tutors who are not only masters in their fields, but are also able to impart the extra encouragement and enthusiasm that students need to stay motivated when they get frustrated.
A great tutor is priceless when it comes to learning a challenging concept, mastering a mathematical formula, or developing strong study skills. To ensure that all of our tutors are up to the challenge, C2 Education utilizes a rigorous hiring process. In fact, only 2% of all tutor applicants are accepted, and all C2 tutors must score above the 95th percentile in their fields.
All C2 tutors undergo a rigorous initial training program that introduces recruits to the demands and techniques associated with tutoring students at various skill levels and in multiple subjects. Before training is complete, each tutor must demonstrate strong technical mastery of their subject areas, the personality skills to be an effective motivator, and the communication skills necessary to explain complicated concepts in a clear manner.
C2 tutors participate in periodic professional development programs designed to address different subject areas, programs, and techniques, ensuring that all C2 tutors are prepared to help students work through new academic challenges.
Academic and professional qualifications are just the start. Our tutors are, first and foremost, great people.
Anyone can transmit facts and data to a student, but it takes a special kind of person to make learning both challenging and enjoyable. Our tutors engage our students on an individual level to develop a strong rapport, which helps students stay motivated and enthusiastic about learning.
Our students say it the best:
I loved all the tutors I worked with and felt lucky to have been helped by such knowledgeable and kind people. Keep doing what you're doing, C2 -- it truly helped me!
