Why We Love Consultation Meetings

PariAt Nurturing Wisdom, we love to get to know our students! In fact, before a tutor starts meeting with a student, a tutoring director spends over an hour interviewing the student and/or his or her parents. This gives the director a chance to get to know the student’s personality, strengths, weaknesses, interests, and approach to school and learning. With this information, the director is able to make a strong tutor match and also help the tutor hit the ground running at the very first session. These consultation meetings tend to be the directors’ favorite part of their job because they truly enjoy figuring out how best to support a student. Plus it’s fun getting to know a new family!

Pari Schacht explains: “I love to do consultation meetings because I get excited to meet a new student and family and to be able to share my knowledge and expertise to help them reach their goals. I love being able to share resources with families and knowing that I can find a tutor who can help. Students and parents are often frustrated by the time they call us for help. It’s a great feeling that I can walk in and help them get the resources to go from frustration to success.”
