What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I enjoy seeing students progress in terms of their understanding and confidence. In my experience, every student's journey to grasping a subject is different and I enjoy being able to help them along these unique journeys. I get immense satisfaction from seeing a student going from struggling with a concept, to that moment where they finally say 'ahhhh I get it'. This is a process that builds up a great level of confidence for the students and help instill in them the value of hard work that will set them up for more future success.
My Strengths as Tutor
My strength lies in my ability to understand what students need. In the past, I've tutored a range of different students and they all have different gaps in their understanding. Hence as a tutor, I see it my job to ask good questions and listen well in order to figure out where these gaps lie so I can help the students improve.
I also have the ability to break down concepts in a simple, easy-to-understand manner. This boils down to the fact that I understand every student learns in a different way. Some responds better through verbal cues, some through visual cues, some with physical cues and some a combination of all these. Hence, I'm quite adept at changing up my communication techniques to fit the students' style.
Most important things I can do for a student
I believe that the most important thing a tutor can do for students is to improve their confidence in their own abilities. Having confidence will equip them with the key tools to deal with fears and self-doubts, which are things that can significantly hinder the learning process. To do this, a tutor has to provide encouragements to students along the way, especially when they are struggling. The tutor has to show the students that success in learning, and in life, isn't about natural abilities. It's about grit and hard work.
