Just to share, I always request to sit in for half an hour to listen to how the tutor teach. Although I cannot teach but I definitely can tell if a tutor can teach, haha!
Sit in? I wouldn't dare to suggest that. I am sure most tutors will not like to be watched by parents.
But if able to sit in, I am sure able to gauge whether tutor can teach.
There is nothing wrong in requesting to sit in. If a tutor can teach, y is he or she scare of parents sitting in? Anyway I dun sit for the whole session nor interrupt them. So far I have tried more than 10 tutors non have rejected me in sitting in although some appeared not so pleased lah. But I can tell u, more than half cant make it. Do u noe how some conduct the tuition? They will just ask the students to do the assessment books then if they r stuck the tutor will help. Liddat I may as well teach them myself. Also, I hv v bad impression of some part time tutors who r studying. During exam periods some will disappear as they r busying preparing for their own exams!
