Commitment / Other Details
I will be able to start on the first week of July and the timings can be discussed. I will travel to your place to conduct lessons and will make sure the lessons are tailored to suit your child!
Rapport Building
At every first lesson, I take some time to learn more about the child and also talk to the parents about their specific concerns and discuss with them some methods I would like to use with their child. From then on, I tailor the lessons to suit each child's individual character and learning styles. I also give the child homework every lesson which I update the parent about after each lesson while also updating with them the progress their child is making. If the student keeps up with his/her homework consistently, I bring them some treats to reward them so they are motivated to continue their efforts. I also usually keep a diary in which I update the tasks accomplished during each lesson and depending on the parent, show it to them in regular intervals.
Keeping Up with Curriculum
Generally I keep up with the curriculum by updating myself online or through assessment books in the market. However, as I've seen that different schools have slightly different styles of teaching the same content, I usually like to take a look at the student's school materials during the first lesson so that I'm not only aware of the current curriculum but also aware of the child's school's expectations when it comes to homework and tests so that I can cater to each specific child.
As a Good Tutor
There's not much to being a good tutor, there are many out there who have mastered the content but at the end of the day, a child will only listen to someone he/she likes and someone he/she looks up to. While I can go on about how committed I am, I think it is more important to say that I will truly try to understand your child and connect with him/her while also being a good example. Only after I become a good friend to the child will the child see me as a good tutor.
