Trying to be a good tutor but everybody doesn’t like your teaching ways? Then read this and learn from the best.
Be fun, but firm. Let your students do some educational but fun games on the computer. Give them short breaks once in a while. Have rewards for being good for an entire session, like giving them a piece of candy at the end of the lesson.
Give your students breaks. The breaks should be no longer than 5 minutes. When they work for long, consecutive periods of time then they are likely to lose focus. They need breaks every now and again, just we do.
Don’t make them do work that’s too hard for them. If they are in the first grade, then don’t expect that they’re going to know square roots, or algebra. Do more simple things consistently, like adding and subtracting, or multiplying and dividing until they master it. Teach your students things that they should know in their grade level.
Be fair. Don’t yell at students if they make a mistake. Don’t make constricted rules, like getting detention for making small errors. It is unjust and chases away the urge to learn. Cut them some slack if they make small mistakes, such as forgetting to place a period in a sentence. Merely write on their paper don’t forget your period next time. However, reinforce your rules for discipline and make sure that your students don’t cross the boundaries. As long as you are fair, fun, and enthused then you will become a good tutor.
