Don’t just say you need a thermodynamics tutor. That is a very general description of what you need and many tutors specialize in different things. Here are a few questions you can answer to help you define your needs more efficiently:
- Do you need someone to help you with your homework?
- Do you need someone to go over your thermodynamic homework solutions to check if they are right?
- Do you need someone to go over the material after each class?
- Are you looking for a tutor to help get a specific thermodynamics assignment or paper done?
- Is there something specific you’re struggling in or do you need help from A to Z in regards to your thermodynamics course?
Don’t worry about finding someone that meets your needs at this point. First write down on paper exactly what you’ll need. It’s important to write it down because you will need to send it to a potential tutor to explain your needs and you want to be sure you didn’t forget any important details. Also, answer the questions honestly, even if you feel a little embarrassed about certain questions (i.e. question 2). There is no shame in needing help – you’d be surprised how many students like yourself hire tutors discretely so that no one knows that they are struggling.
Every student is different, so it comes as no surprise that you have your own personal criteria that is important when choosing a tutor.
Do you want a lesson once a week or once a month? Are you only available during the evening, on weekends, or specific days? Understanding exactly when you’d like these lessons to take place will help you find the right tutor. If you’re looking for someone to help you with homework, don’t forget to take into consideration days you usually get these assignments. If you need someone to help you go over the material, you should schedule the lesson the day after class so that the material is still in your head when the tutor goes over it with you.
Budget for Private Lessons
In order to know what the ideal cost per lesson is for you, you need to define two things: your monthly budget, and how many lessons you want a month. After that, you can easily calculate the maximum price you are willing to pay per lesson.
Once you have these things defined, finding a tutor is a simple as doing an online search.
Enter all of your search criteria from the first and second step into a homework help website. Filter the results according to rating and choose the top five. Send them a message explaining what you need (from step 1) and ask them about their availability and experience. After that, it is simply a matter of choosing a teacher and scheduling your first lesson.
Learning online can seem complicated if you’re new to it, but it is actually very convenient. You get to learn from home at any time, you enjoy full discretion and can put on earphones if you don’t want anyone to hear the teacher, and you enjoy professional services at very competitive costs.
