What do I enjoy most about tutoring? 😁
I most enjoy the moment when a concept "clicks" for a student. Many students I have tutored have felt insecure about their academic abilities, however when these students begin to understand a topic they once found challenging it gives them confidence in themselves.
My Strengths as Tutor 💪
I always have a policy of tailoring my teaching style to meet the individual students needs. There are often many ways to explain a concept, especially in science, and the explanation most conducive to a students learning often varies. One of my strengths is that I am willing and able to change my style of teaching whenever I believe it will benefit the student.
I also ensure that I have a very strong and broad understanding of any topic I teach. I believe that in order to effectively teach a subject you must understand the nuances and intricacies of the concepts surrounding it.
Most important things I can do for a student 🏅
As discussed before, I believe a tutor should be flexible in their teaching in order to meet the needs of each student.
However even more importantly, an effective tutor should inspire students. I strongly believe that one of the greatest barriers to learning is the "study hard and get good grades" mentality. The aim of a tutor should not be to improve grades, it is to encourage the student to learn. By instilling a value of knowledge in their students a tutor empowers the student to make better choices for their future. As a result the students grades are likely to improve regardless.
