All Next Level instructors have relevant experience and proficiency teaching the subjects in which they are experts. And while all of them have undergraduate degrees, many of our instructors also have graduate degrees or are currently matriculated in local graduate programs. All instructors receive training and their work is continuously supervised by our directors. Instructors only tutor subjects for which they are highly qualified.
From time to time we have been asked if our instructors are “certified teachers,” which of course implies graduation from a teaching college or similar teaching certification program. While we do occasionally have instructors who happen to be certified, certification isn’t a prerequisite for employment at Next Level Learning because the pedagogy for traditional teaching programs is typically designed for classroom dynamics. Teaching methods and strategies for classrooms generally don’t apply to one-on-one tutoring. Further, teachers tend to specialize in specific fields, while our instructors are typically well qualified in multiple subjects.
One-on-one tutoring is a specific type of scholarship that rewards instructors who possess outstanding interpersonal skills and the ability to relate to students of all ages and abilities within a dynamic give-and-take structure. Our comprehensive training and development program focuses on teaching methods and strategies that are unique to one-on-one tutoring and proven over many years to be beneficial tools in our work with students.
