What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I like the accomplishment of helping students understand a concept that they previously found difficult, and help them improve their grades. It is also a way of interacting with others and building tutor-tutee relationships.
My Strengths as Tutor
I believe in active learning (as opposed to 'spoon-feeding), and that identifying correct thinking skills will help tremendously in the learning process. As a student myself, I can connect with tutees by adopting their perspective in order to identify the reason why they are facing challenges in understanding a specific concept. I can then make corrections as necessary or find alternative approaches to help them learn. I also encourage them to not fear making mistakes, and ask questions where necessary, as it can often point us to something that we did not know previously.
