What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
Helping someone understand concepts and watching them improve their knowledge, hopefully leading to commendable results. It is always rewarding to see hard work which pays off, either personally or vicariously.
My Strengths as Tutor
I engage well with others, particularly younger people. In my final year of volunteering in the school library, I was tasked with supervising younger peers. During that time, I was also selected as the vice-captain of my sport: rifle shooting. My specific role also had an emphasis on working with peers, in depending on one another as I individually coached each member of our team. In addition, I have personally had a number of private tutors, with a wide range in ability, experience and knowledge. As such, I have a sense of the components which constitute a good teacher.
Most important things I can do for a student
The first and most obvious role of a tutor is to explain concepts and teach a student. They can guide the student and show them the path. However, it is ultimately up to the student to complete their own studies. I feel that another major role of a tutor is also to act as a mentor. In current times, a tutor may interact frequently with a student and therefore have an impact on their upbringing. This was definitely my personal experience as I had the same maths tutor for 8 years
