Chances are, you aren't thinking about life after graduation from high school. Chances are, many of you do not ponder about what you plan on doing after officially leaving high school. It doesn't matter what age you are. By the time you enter your middle school years, you should be thinking reasonably about what you want to do for a living. Where can you begin when thinking about a career path? Think about your passions. If you are an athlete in middle or high school, you may be thinking about becoming a professional football, basketball or soccer player. These are great aspirations but consider the realistic side of it. The average high school or college student going pro is less than 2%. (Source: NCAA). Consider researching the careers directly related to the sports industry. For example, "sports medicine, sports law, sports education, sports journalism." The possibilities are endless! Perhaps you are into computers. You spend hours on a laptop, pc, or tablet and you know the ends and outs based on your curiosity. Consider researching computer engineering or computer drafting, network administration, website programmer, etc. The sky is the limit when it comes to finding a career that suits your needs and desires. A career should reflect your interests and passions. If you desire to become a "doctor", understand that a doctor is much more than just a person working in a hospital. You can become a doctor of law (JD), Doctor of Medicine (MD), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D), Doctor of Education (Ed.D), etc. If you are looking for a career that pays a lot, consider this, do what you love, the money will follow.
We all know that the cost of hiring a professional tutor can be outrageous. If you're looking for affordability you tend to investigate the private sector. If you're looking for credibility, the corporate sector is quite possibly the way to go, only, their fees are astronomical. Educators in the public and private schools usually dedicate their time directly after school and very seldom offer help off campus. Children who are in desperate need of assistance and their families are financially strapped are usually left behind and are pushed forward a grade level each year still being behind in the curriculum. Our question to you is, what do you look for in a tutoring company? Do you pay attention to affordability, credibility, location, or integrity?
