How to get the most out of your tutoring session

Updated: Sep 27, 2020

As a private tutor, one of the most challenging aspects of tutoring is arriving at a client's house/ online for a session and they are not prepared. This is frustrating because it would mean that valuable time is lost and as the saying goes time is money. By not being prepared, the client is wasting his or her parent's money and the tutor may not be able to accomplish much during that session. As we approach the start of the new term, here are a few tips to help you prepare for your tutoring session and ensure that you get value for your money.

1. Keep your tutoring appointments as much as possible. If you are unable to attend try to schedule a make-up class if this is at all possible. If you are going to be late, let your tutor know as soon as possible since you are normally charged for no-shows or being tardy.

2.Make sure you know what's going on in class. If there are any concepts that you do not understand your tutor will be able to explain them to you during this time. If you do not have any problems, the tutor will be able to move on so you will be ahead of your class.

3. Have your notes and study material at hand. As the saying goes " a carpenter cannot work without tools" the same applies to Tutoring. As a Tutor, nothing is more frustrating than a student who is not prepared for a session. To ensure that the session runs smoothly, please ensure that all textbooks, notes, and your notebook are at hand before the start of a session. By not being prepared you are wasting time which could have been spent on your tutoring.

4. Complete your homework assignments. Tutors assign homework for a reason. This is to gauge whether or not you understand what is being taught. When the assignments are not completed, it hinders the tutoring process.

5.Have a positive attitude and be prepared to work. Tutoring will not work if you are unwilling to work. A Tutor can work hard and deliver excellent notes but at the end of the day, the student's willingness to do the assignments and review notes will determine how successful tutoring will be.

Tutoring works, however, you must play your role to ensure that it does. By following these 5 steps you will be able to get the most out of your tutoring sessions.
