What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
The most enjoyable thing about tutoring is not the improvement of grades. It's getting to witness the effects increased grades have on your students; the change in confidence and their newfound determination is inspiring.
Also, I have a skill. A skill that can change the world for my tutees. And that's not an understatement. And these are broken sentences... High grades can lead to university placements, scholarships, jobs, and careers. That's something I can help students achieve and I love knowing I've helped those who have put trust in me.
My Strengths as Tutor
As a tutor my strengths are simple: my teaching style is dynamic, my attitude is focused, my personality is outgoing and encouraging, and my position is one more alike a mentor role than a teacher.
An example of my dynamic teaching style is how I work with my youngest student Izabel. Izabel was in year 8 when I first met and started tutoring her in one of the school classrooms every Wednesday after school. She was not passing Maths, was willing to learn, but totally disinterested in doing something she thought she was never... Reached the char limit. Allow me an interview to explain more :)
Most important things I can do for a student
The most import thing a tutor can realise is that everyone has different expectations and preferences for learning and those criteria need to be what shapes how you teach individual students.
Just as importantly however, you need to be constantly searching for the root of the problem your student is having;
-Is their basic math knowledge lacking? Do you need to revisit vital 'old stuff'?
-Are they asking too many questions? Maybe their confidence in solving these problems is low. Don't wait for them to ask for help, do an example for them.
