My Approach to Private Tuition

I have both had experience tutoring and being a tutee myself and I have found that the most important part of tutoring sessions is being able to create an immediate trusting relationship with a tutee in order for them to open up about their academic problems. This allows for the tutor to be able to ask directed questions at the areas that the tutee finds concerning and tackle them as soon as possible, making sure not to waste any valuable time. To do so, it is necessary to be patient, kind and clear with the questions asked.
Also, very important, is understanding what method of teaching and studying the tutee is used to and evaluating whether that method works or is best for him/her. This will allow me, as his/her tutor, to shape my tutoring lessons in a way that the tutee can best retain the knowledge taught.
When I tutor, what I think is necessary for the tutee to keep wanting to learn and engage with the lessons is making lessons interactive. I do so involving the student in the teaching process by asking questions and in the understanding process by bringing material that the tutee can practice on. Equally important is to be able to reward the tutee effectively, in order to keep his/her motivation high.
In terms of techniques, I am lucky enough to have a lot of material as I have just finished school myself. Being a very studious student, I passed hours researching for extra material on the subjects I teach and these will be invaluable to my tutees in terms of understanding the subject better and practicing during and post-tutoring sessions.
