What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I would say it is being a part of and watching the growth and progress of a student. When a student starts out they may not be as strong in a particular area, for example integration. However as they learn how and why it works through learning about the Riemann Sum and how it came to be, they understand and unlock so much more in terms of their ability to understand and apply to various questions. I receive so much joy when I see a student understand a finally understand a concept, the expression of that initial discovery on their face really is one of the key reasons I enjoy tutoring.
My Strengths as Tutor
- Being a recent HSC student I understand what it is like during a stressful time, and also understand the keys to performing under pressure.
- I have a thorough and deep knowledge of the syllabus and how marks are aligned, scaled, moderated and attained, which can benefit a student's attack on the HSC, ultimately maximising their ATAR.
- My method of teaching is very structured and this is beneficial to students when they first come across a new concept. They learn what the question is asking, how to approach such a question, the method to get the answer and how to check if it is right.
Most important things I can do for a student
A tutor must be able to listen to the student and be able to understand what it is they are struggling with. Sometimes a student is not able to indicate where they are having difficulty; here the tutor must be able to identify the issue and use methodology to guide the student on to the right track. A tutor must support and encourage the student to perform at their best. A tutor must also provide feedback to the student on where they are performing well, developing and where they are struggling, then design questions to address these struggles, developing the understanding of the student.
