Kweku - Physics Tutor in NORTH MELBOURNE
What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I enjoy the journey. Meeting a student at a point where they're not confident they can understand whatever concept they're struggling with and being able to journey with them to a place where they realise they can actually do this thing -whatever it is. It's rewarding for me to know I've listened, learned, and communicated effectively, and it's ALWAYS rewarding to see them succeed.
My Strengths as Tutor
My strengths will definitely be my willingness to listen, to seek to understand, and to communicate effectively. I also found that as I seek to understand I grow in patience and I'm able to communicate better or try to explain a concept from a different angle, using what I've learned from the student I'm teaching.
Most important things I can do for a student
Listen, encourage and be willing to work alongside them. I've found that when I didn't understand a concept and I felt assured that the person helping me believed in me, believed that I could succeed and helped me from that perspective, I was more willing to listen, to learn, to try, to make mistakes, to be corrected, to try again, and eventually I succeeded and began to believe I had what it took to succeed.
