What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
The most rewarding aspect of tutoring is witnessing the growth and development of a student as a direct result of your teaching - and similarly the process it takes to reach such a stage.
While it's an enjoyable and important experience seeing your student receive great grades, it is equally as critical to understand that it takes time to reach such a stage, and that your actions largely facilitate or hinder this process. It this journey of understanding the student, and fostering a relationship that I most enjoy about tutoring, and is what motivates me to continue to do this.
My Strengths as Tutor
I believe my strengths as a tutor lie in my capacity to show empathy and understanding towards each student. Understanding that each individual had different strengths, weaknesses and preferences was key in allowing me develop a robust student-teacher relationship, and aided in providing a lesson that motivated each student rather than to intimidate them.
This allowed me to deliver lessons that were geared towards each student, and what they would respond positively to.
Most important things I can do for a student
The most important thing a tutor can do for a student is to show an understanding of their skill, and to adjust accordingly. I believe this is the key difference between a tutor and a teacher - the fact that a student is able to receive an undivided learning experience. Accordingly, the lesson plan should be delivered with an understanding of the student's strengths and weaknesses so that the student feels comfortable to their personal pace.
