The biggest challenge for your partnership is the commitment of time. Keep in mind that this agreement is taken into account in addition to the professional and personal calendar and that the tutoring partnership requires time, energy and work to ensure its success. To reconcile these aspects, close agreement and structured meetings can minimize the waste of time and energy. By entering into the partnership, you have already guaranteed your commitment, so you simply need tools to keep up. This agreement describes the expectations and objectives as well as the specifics of the relationship. See our sample of the tutoring agreement (PDF). The agreement should include contact information (including preferred methods and time), the definition of a meeting plan, the definition of the objectives and objectives of both parties, the setting of progress review dates and a termination date. Once this is negotiated and completed, you are ready to start your tutoring partnership. These preparations can help minimize potential frustrations.

All subsequent appointments will benefit from a well-established criteria for productive achievement, including reviewing development goals and conducting progress tests. This is the long-term content of the tutoring process.
