We believe excellent teaching quality is the result of perfect tutor pairing and the accurate assessment contributes to the success matching. We offer free in-home assessment not only for the convenience of parents but also for the students to conduct the assessment in a safe and relaxed environment. The evaluation and testing system of Golden Key Tutor is integrated into the psychological theory, which is not only a subject knowledge evaluation, but also the non-intelligence factors affecting children's learning.

  1. Formulate tailored lesson plans

After finding the right teacher, we will ask the teacher to provide a brief lesson plan that points how he/she plans to teach this student and the objectives that the student will achieve at the end of the class. The lesson plan ensures the tutoring session are systematically, effective, measurable, and sets goals for both student and tutors to achieve. After the tutor provide a lesson plan, they will have to go over it with your personal education consultant to ensure the plan is feasible and will works with the student. Our experienced education consultant would also give insight and input into the lesson plan to make sure it’s feasible.

  1. In-home sessions and regular oral report

All tutors are carefully selected and verified. They hold the same core values as our company: professional, responsible, caring, and helpful. Our goal is to guide students to achieve success in a warm and supportive environment, helping them develop motivation and interest in learning. They would all have come prepared to provide the best lesson. After each in-home session, our tutors will provide an oral progress update to parents.

  1. A detailed study tracking

After the first class, we would have the tutor give an oral report of how the first class went and how they plan to tailor their lessons from now on. Often after the initial tutoring session, the tutor has a better understanding of the student’s academic level and personality, the tutor will adjust the lesson plan accordingly, so as to ensure that the tutoring is tailored to the student’s needs. And your personal education consultant would report back to you and see how to work out an even more suitable lesson plan based on everyone’s feedback. Achievement reports are delivered to the student and parents after twelve lessons by the tutor and education consultant. The achievement report is done periodically to show vivid result of lesson result. So that parent, student, tutor, and the agency would have an idea of what’s working and what’s not.

  1. Long-lasting effects

We believe the best way for student to learn is when they want to learn. There are many factors that play into a successful lesson besides the teacher qualification and experience. We believe a lesson style that is right for the kids will help them develop the interest and confident they didn’t even know they have before.

Our teaching style always embedded with element that help them develop interest, motivation, and confident in lesson. On top of stronger academic performance, students also gain more confidence in themselves. Our strong and approachable tutor-student relationship will make learning fun for students.
