If you’re preparing to take the MBLEx exam, you may be wondering how to find an MBLEx tutor, or even questioning if you really need a tutor.
I have helped thousands of students pass the MBLEx, many of who thought they needed a tutor but really just needed some tips and direction on how to study for the MBLEx.
But some people really do need that one-on-one exam preparation help and today we are going to figure out if that is you. And if it is, I will provide you with some tips to find a tutor. I do not offer individual tutoring at this time.
And maybe we will find that you just need some direction for studying for the MBLEx, like more practice questions and MBLEx simulations, help with focusing on specific problems areas, and tips on how to put together a plan to pass your MBLEx. I do offer this service in a self-directed format on Massage Exam Academy.
Let’s find out what you need.
3 benefits of having an MBLEx tutor:
When you work with a tutor, you will have their undivided attention. They can help you focus on your specific needs and tailor the sessions to your learning style.
It can be easy to get discouraged when studying for a difficult exam like the MBLEx. A tutor can provide much-needed motivation and support during this process.
Having someone to hold you accountable for your study goals can make a big difference in how successful you are. A tutor can help you stay on track and make the most of your study time.
3 cons of having an MBLEx tutor:
One of the biggest drawbacks of hiring a tutor is the cost. Tutoring can be expensive, and it may not be feasible for everyone. Some charge $50 an hour for a tutoring session. This may not be practical for many one-on-one sessions.
Another downside to tutoring is that it can be difficult to find a time that works for both you and your tutor. If you have a busy schedule, it may be tough to fit tutoring into your week.
Not Tackling the Right Issue
A tutor who does not find out why you are struggling will only be a waste of money. If you hire a tutor, hire one that will help you understand what you are studying and learn to think about how to solve problems.
If these are going to be an issue for you, you may need to look at self-directed MBLEx prep programs that are available 24/7 and can provide you with some direction on what you need to be studying.
Where to find an MBLEx tutor
There are a few different ways to go about finding a qualified tutor who can help you prepare for this important test.
One way to find an MBLEx tutor is to contact massage schools in your area and ask if they have any recommendations. It may not be the school you attended or are attending, but it never hurts to call around and ask for recommendations.
Many instructors at massage schools are also MBLEx tutors on the side.
There also may be some graduates of the school that have passed the MBLEx and offer tutoring services in addition to their jobs as massage therapists.
Some massage schools offer group MBLEX prep courses when their students are preparing to graduate. You may ask the school if you can sit in on these classes to help you prepare.
Online MBLEx tutoring services
There are a few online MBLEx tutoring services that can help you prepare for the exam. Some offer individual tutoring and others offer a mix with some weekly question and answer sessions.
What to ask a potential tutor
Once you’ve found a few potential tutors, there are some important questions you should ask before making your decision.
First, ask about their qualifications. What experience do they have with the MBLEx? How long have they been tutoring?
Next, inquire about their teaching style. Some people learn best by listening to lectures while others prefer a more hands-on approach.
Finally, ask about their availability and how much they charge. You want to make sure you’re able to afford the tutoring and that it will fit into your schedule.
Don’t be afraid to interview several different tutors before making your decision. It’s important that you find someone who you’re comfortable with and who can help you achieve your study goals.
Other questions you need to ask yourself while preparing for the MBLEx
Do you need an MBLEx tutor or ESL services?
Some non-native English speakers struggle with taking the MBLEx due to the way the questions are worded, not because they do not understand the concepts. If English is not your first language, you may benefit from some ESL courses while you study for the MBLEx instead of an MBLEx tutor.
Do you have a learning disability?
Learning disabilities can make the MBLEx seem even more overwhelming. Make sure your tutor is aware of any learning disabilities you have so they can adjust their teaching methods to meet your needs. Are there any other learning services that could help you as you prepare for MBLEx?
Do you have exam anxiety?
If you suffer from exam or test anxiety, working with a tutor can help you learn some coping mechanisms and strategies to deal with this on test day.
However, replicating the pace and feel of the MBLEx through timed practice exams is what most of our Massage Exam Academy students say helped them pass their exams and quiet their anxiety.
Here is more information about taking the MBLEx and exam anxiety.
