Tips on how to be a good tutor

  As a private tutor, you are giving one to one assistance to students, so your
attitude and behaviour can influence your students subconsciously. As a result,
parents tend to be more cautious when selecting a private tutor for their children.
Tutors need to be intellectually bright and they must know what it feels like not to
understand.They must be creative, able to explain a concept by using stories,
drawings, analogies, or metaphors. Tuition teachers must be affirming people,
and humble, and patient.So how can you qualify yourself ? And what are the
requirements to becoming a good private tutor? Here are some points that may
help you:


1) Establish rapport with the student

A good private tutor is able to connect and speak the same language as the
students. Being on the same wavelength as the student enables more efficient
communication.


2) Be a strong motivator

You have to understand the reason why the students need  home tuition in the
first place, is  because most of them are not faring well in the subjects they sought
tuition assistance for. It is now that the private tutor's role as a motivator comes in.
If you can encourage and motivate them, this will prevent the students from giving
up on themselves. A positive and healthy mindset is crucial and  important to a
student's performance. Helping students understand their coursework  will help
push them on.


3) Passion in teaching

Tutoring is not just giving the student homework and assessments to do. It is not
just about making the extra $$. If you have the desire to help the students improve
in their studies,the parent will also grade you as a good quality private tutor.
Update the parents on the academic progress of the child, and also talk to the tutee
about his improvements, and they will appreciate you as a good tutor.

Becoming a  good private tutor is not easy. Sharing your knowledge with the
students is merely the basic requirement. On top of that, you need to motivate and
help them  improve their understanding of their work. You will find out that it is all the
parents want and look out for.

Are you an top Student in Singapore?

It is not necessary to be an top student to be a good tuition teacher in Singapore.
But it is necessary to like people. It is also necessary to listen. Tutoring is not so
much an act of sharing information as it is a process of empowering. The focus is
primarily on helping and teaching people how to learn. Sometimes this means
teaching them to take smaller bites of information, and sometimes it means
reformatting content so that it is more meaningful to the person learning it.
But whatever strategy is required, the goal is always get your student to
understand something.
