Five Steps to Being an Effective Tutor 1. Know what is Expected of You As A Tutor Know your responsibilities and duties as a tutor 2. Be prepared for every tutoring session. The better you are prepared; the better you will be able to tutor. Shape the tutoring environment. Prepare yourself for your client. Prepare any necessary tutoring paperwork/report 3. Meet your client’s needs. Get to know your client’s: Learning style Academic needs 4. Know the Ingredients of a Good Tutor Session The following are some of the necessary ingredients for a good session: Greet your client and give them your undivided attention. Have empathy with your client’s problems. Be honest with your client. Create a realistic agenda Have a sense of humor. Have the ability to “lighten up” a situation. Ask your students about special ongoing events in their lives and shape up the session based on those. Have a good interaction with your student, a good give and take. Know your client’s strengths and weaknesses. Focus on their strengths to build confidence and to overcome their weaknesses. Award your student for improvement. Know when to stop a session. End the session on a positive note and ALWAYS assign sufficient homework for next time. 5. Ending the Tutoring Session Do not just say “good-bye” when the session is over. You should: Positively assess the work that was done during the session. Give assignments if appropriate. Reschedule for another session. Always end the session with a positive comment. Listening, the most important thing you will do! Minimize distractions – tune out other conversations. Be attentive to your student. Make eye contact – this let’s student know you have his/her full attention, and you will be more able to discern their questions. Minimize note-taking – while some note taking is important, excessive note taking is a distraction for listening Ask questions from your student and help them solve the problem themselves. Find a solid ground of their knowledge and build the material on that ground. Always collect your thoughts before you begin explaining – the best explanation is clear and in the fewest words. Use open-ended questions and probing questions – Why? Can you elaborate? Can you clarify what you mean? What property allows us to make this next step? Paraphrase what you hear – before diving into an explanation, paraphrase what you think the student said so your response is as clear as possible. Never assume you know what the student is asking. Always clarify with the student before responding. A student may be struggling with trying to explain what they don’t understand. Paraphrase back in your own words, what you think the student is saying. This will help you and the student to better communicate. Be empathetic – try to look at things from the student’s point of view Use positive body language – staying focused on the student, smiling, not fidgeting while the student is talking. How to write an effective report Your report should include three paragraphs: Old Business: Check on homework and see if they have completed what you or other tutors might have assigned. Ask them if they have taken any tests recently and report their score. Ask them how they are doing in their other classes. If you feel they might need help with a certain subject let us know (also see section for compensation). And write why you are meeting that day and what the agenda is. New Business: What you guys covered during the session. This should be descriptive enough for another tutor to be able to continue what you started. Future Business: End with a positive note. Be sure to assign homework and report what they need to do for next session. (General Comment: Try to use student’s name instead of a general phrase such as “student” or “tutee”.)
