Does finding “the right” instructor really matter?

FAQ Home

Perhaps the most compelling feature of one-on-one tutoring is the opportunity for an instructor to develop rapport with a student, which doesn’t occur to a significant degree in a group setting. An effective instructor/student partnership builds trust and fosters meaningful communication, which in turn engenders a collaborative environment that facilitates the process of identifying strengths and weaknesses and promotes practical pathways to improvement. As the relationship between the instructor and student progresses the a bond of trust develops, engagement and motivation are kindled, anxiety diminishes, and confidence and performance typically improve.

Sometimes the bond between an instructor and a student develops right away and other times it may take a few sessions. At Next Level we are experts at matching students with instructors who have attributes we deem to be a good fit for a specific student. After decades of assigning students to instructors, Next Level directors are adept at assessing a student’s unique personality, aptitude, learning style, expectations, and objectives to ensure each of out students is working with the “right” instructor.
