Know The Traits Of A Good Tutor

Aug 26, 2019

A private tutor can help to improve your child’s academic standing, self-confidence, and focus, provided you find one suiting your child’s temperament and learning style. The following guide can help.

Good tutors share; they don’t lecture

When a tutor is enthusiastic about his/her teaching, s/he doesn’t just teach; s/he shares. As a result, the study session doesn’t seem like a droning lecture anymore. Instead, it seems more like an intense, in-depth conversation where the student participates with full gusto.

They are approachable

One of the fundamental issues that students face is the fear of a subject and the subject teacher. As a result, their performance worsens over time.

You, as a parent, should do your best to find a tutor who helps to ease these fears and renew your child's interest in the subject. The child should get the notion that s/he won’t be punished or ridiculed for his/her shortcomings

Good tutors maintain records

Good tutors monitor the progress of their students, even without being asked to. One of the first questions that you should ask to a potential candidate is - how does s/he plan to assess your child? If s/he is experienced enough, s/he will provide you with targets and milestones (like moving from grade C to grade B in the next 6 months).

Good tutors should possess excellent ability to “Teach”

There are tutors with an excellent knowledge of the subject but may not have the ability to teach it to a 15-year old kid. And then, there are also some having the natural gift of explaining tough concepts to an amateur making it all look like a piece of cake for him/her.

Good tutors have different revision processes

Good tutors should be proactive. They should alert you of your coming examinations instead of you alerting them of the same. Look for tutors having a particular revision process for your kid, especially at the time of the examinations. The ideal process should act as a cover for all your child’s weaknesses.
