What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
For the last two years of school, I lived in a boarding house. Here, I learnt to love tutoring. One night, as I was preparing to sleep, a grade 7 boy ran into my room crying. A bit shocked, I comforted him and asked him what was wrong. The cause of his distress was because he believed he was going to fail his chemistry test.
So, over the next few days, I spent an hour each night working through some chemistry content and questions with him. By the end, he was enjoying it, could see the beauty of chemistry and had vastly improved. That, the transformation of students, is what I enjoy the most.
My Strengths as Tutor
Since the age of ten, I've been passionate about science and mathematics. It's been the driving force of my aspirations and in recent years I have developed the skill of communicating and sharing these passions (I recently gave a TEDx presentation that demonstrates this). That skill is what I believe differentiates me as a tutor. I have the ability to get students excited and passionate about what they're learning. Once they get to that stage, they are much more eager to learn and will perform many orders of magnitude better. In addition, I have made myself familiar with the VCE system.
Most important things I can do for a student
I did touch on this in my previous answer but I'll say it again because I think it's that important! Encouraging students to love and see the beauty of the subjects they're studying is essential as it serves to catalyse their improvement. I have seen this multiple times in many students. Another equally important facet of tutoring is making sure the student realises their own ability and potential. This serves to improve their confidence which will always improve their performance.
