Rapport Building
I would make the effort to get to know my students and their parents on a personal level as I believe that it is important for students to be comfortable with the tutor in order for them to be open in asking questions and sharing about their performance in school.
Keeping Up with Curriculum
I would refer to textbooks, past year papers and assessment books to understand the curriculum in terms of what topics are covered and how lessons in school are taught. I follow up by planning my lessons from there.
As a Good Tutor
I would first understand the needs of my student by checking on whether or not they have understood what they've been taught in school. I would focus on clarifying the concepts they are unsure of before teaching them new concepts as it is important to establish a good foundation. I would help them to build on their understanding of the concepts through exposing them to more practices and through my guidance. My goal would be to allow my students to be familiar with the concepts they were previously unsure of and to allow them to progress to a point where they are able to apply these concepts independently. I would also seek to understand the pace of my student and plan my lessons accordingly. As a tutor I'm also very open to questions from my students as i believe in the importance of asking questions and clarifying doubts. I'm also open to suggestions on how to conduct my lessons in a way that is catered to the needs and preferences of my students in order to maximize their learning!
