I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson. I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key...

My job as a tutor is to ensure that my students are understanding and engaging with material, and enjoying their learning! So often, schools are unable to provide an individualised approach to learning, as they are required to follow a strict curriculum to prepare for exams.

My tutor sessions revolve around the student's needs and requirements from the outset, by finding out what the student feels they most need to cover during that session. I encourage the student to do the majority of talking, and create an atmosphere in which they feel comfortable asking questions at any point. More often than not, the student - through...

Initially, I believe it is important for me to get to know the student in terms of their interests, learning style, and way of working so that I am able to carry out an informal assessment and then can adapt my teaching style accordingly. I always build a strong and positive rapport with all my students which helps then engage...
