Qualities Of An Effective Tutor

Comments Off on Qualities Of An Effective Tutor 23 September 2011

Oftentimes, the best candidate for a home tutoring job is a professional teacher. Not only he/she has the credentials but he/she also has practical teaching experiences. However, most professional teachers consider home instruction as an additional burden. Fortunately, there are tutoring services that provide tutors who are as competent and qualified as professional teachers.

It can be said then that to practice this profession, one may not necessarily be a professional teacher. All it takes is to have the required credentials and certifications to be able to qualify for this job. Obtaining work experience in the teaching field is definitely an advantage.

People with field expertise can also qualify for a tutoring job. For example, musicians can share their knowledge and their own style of learning to amateur musicians by doing a part-time teaching job. This can be done by specialists who also have the passion for teaching.

But being an expert in a particular field is not enough to be an effective tutor, since teaching necessitates communication skills. The best way to bridge this gap is for specialists to obtain additional teaching methods. They must remember that students who agreed to have tutors have specific needs- some need extra time for learning, while others seek to acquire advanced knowledge.

Time and dedication are the two things required from a home tutor. An effective tutor conducts an assessment and evaluation of the student’s learning preferences and capabilities. A tutor also finds time to create a syllabus so that student has a guide as to how the class would go.

And if resources like computers and Internet are available, a dedicated tutor may post a manual, additional learning information and other subject matters that are relevant to the lessons. Using various modern communication media is helpful in times that a tutor cannot meet his/her student. Communicating online helps the student stay updated and connected with the tutor.

Lastly, not all professional tutors see home tutoring a burden. Parents can be assured that tutoring companies provide them with a professional teacher doing a part-time tutoring job.

A home tutor does not necessarily have to be a professional teacher to do this job. All it takes to become effective tutors is competence and necessary teaching experience. (7986). Check here for free reprint license: Qualities Of An Effective Tutor.
