It would be nice to have a place on the forum where new tutors are announced. What do you think about this idea?
In my opinion there should be a rule about a minimum experience with LingQ that a new tutor should have. A tutor should have experienced tutoring from the sight of a student before he becomes a tutor. These requirements could be for example:
- A minimum time being a member of LingQ (1 month)
- A minimum number of created LingQs (300)
- A minimum number of conversations with a tutor (1)
- A minimum number of written words (50)
- A minimum number of posts on the forum (5)
All these requirements would ensure that the tutor is used to LingQ, and is able to advise the students how to use LingQ
It could happen if a new student and an inexperienced tutor comes together that the student think LingQ isn’t worth to work with it. An idea related to this issue is that experienced students “test” a new tutor. They can give some advice, and help to overcome the difficulties at the beginning. I for myself have often booked conversation with new English tutors. I got the feeling they appreciated this. I hope it was helpful for them.
