What makes you a great tutor? The question everyone should ask before a tutor start his/her career in teaching. Through my experience in online teaching of high school students I know the excitement that students and teachers have during a learning session.
I’m sharing few topics that might help you make a great tutor:
1. Develop a repo with your students so student feel bonded and trust you to succeed.
2. Make learning session a fun. Student should not feel stressed out. Develop some game strategy when helping students with their homework. Make a game in such a way that students can memorize the words and still feel like it was a game.
3. Make your student feel that school work to real like honestly. Make your learning lessons taking in to consideration of what your students like or what they do not like. Your learning lesson should not be that difficult to lean by students.
4. Lessons should be designed lightly, they don’t have to be so serious buckle down-work. Make all the lessons fun to learn.
5. You ensure that pay all the respect to all your students and recognize their talent and value.
6. Make your tutoring approach as easy to feel like a fun to learn.
7. As a tutor, you should have passion to teach for your favorite subject. You show a love for what you teach and how you teach and your students.
8. To be great tutor, you will need to be confident in your teaching approach. Having a confidence means to admit a mistake when you made one. Be honest with your students. If do not know the answer to any question, tell students that you will come back later on the question, do not provide a wrong answer.
9. You should a good listening skill. Without a good listening skills, you may lose the grip in a conversation between you and the students.
