Tutors fill a different role than teachers and parents, and that puts them in a unique position to support students.
Essential ingredients to a successful tutor/student relationship.
Our Classroom School Skills Method:
Children learn the disciplines that are transferable to the classroom, like spaced repetition, organization skills, study skills, and pen to paper learning couple with project-based learning. Students interact with their teachers and peers face-to-face in a group setting and learning how to thrive in school and in tutoring sessions is one of our primary goals.
Successful tutors build strong, personal relationships with their students.
Personal relationships are foundational to student success. The more connected a student feels to his or her tutor, the more the tutor creates trust and respect.
Truly personalize learning:
- Incorporate connections to the student’s interests.
- Teach to the student’s strengths.
- Minimize the student’s weaknesses.
We’ve found that 95 percent of our students were more likely to increase their homework completion and accuracy with a tutor who builds a strong, personal relationship with them. Also, our students were 86 percent more likely to set goals, use their weekly agenda, and improve their general study skills and organizational strategies.
