What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I enjoy that one-on-one experience with my students,
where I get to really learn about their interests, strengths, weaknesses, skills and study techniques. This is much different to being a classroom teacher, where you do not get to spend time with or learn about each individual student. I believe that tutoring is where students get the most educational benefit from as the session is adjusted to the student's needs, and I enjoy being able to help them. I also love the friendliness of tutoring, outside a formal background, where I can actually build a friendship with my students.
My Strengths as Tutor
My greatest strength as a tutor is my ability to pick up on a student's needs and study preferences (e.g. whether they are a textbook learner, a visual learner, prefer palm cards over notes or practice questions over content learning). This helps the students benefit the most from our session and I think its a great thing that I never tutor two students the same way. My strength as a tutor is that I am also young, approachable, and easy to talk to, making the sessions more engaging and the students more likely to learn.
Most important things I can do for a student
The most important thing a tutor can do for a student is concentrate on their needs. The student already has teachers at school who teach the class broadly, irrespective of a particular student's strength or weaknesses. A tutor must listen to what the student struggles with, and assist them with that area. A tutor can also be the most encouraging as they can, provide practice questions and notes, and help the students better understand difficult areas of their study by explaining it in detail, through simplistic terms, or analogy to relatable things to help students engage.
