My Strengths as Tutor
My experience as a cricket umpire means that I am adept at communicating to both children and adults, with communication skills being absolutely critical to any teaching endeavour. Also, being an engineer instills me with a problem solving approach to tasks that allowed me to identify core roadblocks to my previous students' learning, rather than just 'treating the symptoms' by superficially helping them with their homework. Although some people may consider the lack of a formal teaching degree to be a weakness, I did not find it to be limiting in any way in my previous tutoring experience.
Most important things I can do for a student
I believe a tutor should complement, not replace, teachers and school. Instead, the most important thing a tutor can do for a student is to take advantage of the time they spend with students individually to identify the core roadblock that prevents their understanding, and then clear it, in a way that teachers, with a class of thirty students, cannot. Once this is accomplished, the extra confidence, learning and ultimately results will follow.
