Have you ever thought of getting a private tutor for your child? What are the benefits of a one-on-one session? Can this kind of tutoring really make a difference in your student’s test scores?

One-on-one tutoring is the best way to personalize the exam preparation process because it tailors the session to the needs of the individual student, which is hard even for the best teachers to do in a larger group setting. The tutor gets to focus on specific areas the students need to improve on. This level of attention ultimately boosts the student’s performance and grade on the exam, and increases their chances of getting into the college of their dreams.

In this episode of The Parents of High-Achieving Students Podcast, Tim Prunyi, the Director of Academics at Prep Expert, is interviewed by Dr. Jeremy Weisz, the Co-founder of Rise25, to discuss the benefits of securing private one-on-one tutoring for your child. Tim explains the reasons why parents should get a one-on-one tutor for their children, the subjects that Prep Expert offers for one-on-one tutoring, and how they vet the tutors they hire and match them with the students.
