Choose the right teaching method
Students come in many forms: depending on the specific case you must have Teaching methods suitable for each student The teaching method must not be stereotyped but must be flexible and skillful.
- Students who are quite agile like to be autonomous in their learning You only need to guide the method and let yourself do the exercises. You just need to supervise and guide the students where they don’t understand so that they can complete the exercises you assign themselves. However, you need to check carefully because the This type of student is quick and agile, so their chances of making mistakes are very high, so they need to bend quickly but accurately.
- Other types of students are lazy to brainstorm just want the tutor to explain in detail although those problems are as old as the earth themselves, they can think of this type of student teaching very hard but you need to be patient to teach in detail to avoid scolding them for doing so They will judge you teaching unenthusiastic and will report back to your parents, affecting your reputation.
- Other types of students due to mental retardation: This type of student learns first and forgets later. However, you have to understand and sympathize because everyone is born, no one wants them and their children like that, everyone wants them and their children to be better than others. However, not everyone has what they want. You have to be really patient and calm in this way when teaching them, you just need to re-teach the knowledge they have learned in school, let them redo the exercises in school and let them do the same exercises as the previous ones. The exercises that the teachers at school have given them to do are enough. You have to let them do the same exercises over and over again because “the rain seeps into the ground” they will remember and apply the basic exercises to take exams and tests. You need to skillfully encourage and show them the meaning of the phrase “hard work compensates for intelligence”. When they are eager to learn, their learning will improve.
Please make the students happy.
The tutor must also understand that, although he is a teacher, his target audience is not the same as the students and teachers in high schools so that you can scold and bully them. Sometimes they are ignorant, liar, and naughty, rich children, so sometimes the tutor also acts as a babysitter. Parents often don’t have time to check how the tutor is doing, but all the good or bad information about the tutor, need to add or remove a lesson, let the tutor continue or take a break…, usually through the child. my beloved child.
Therefore, the tutor must understand the psychology of students, get close, get along with students to create sympathy. It is necessary to have more solid knowledge about a certain field that students are interested in so that they respect, they feel very “super”. Storytelling must be mixed into the lessons and the first few sessions can be spent spending a few minutes playing with the students, if they so desire. When students have sympathized with me, the tutor can rest assured that when I scold them, they will also sit still and endure the battle without reacting.
You must understand that today’s students are not unintelligent, however, their academic performance is still weak due to unwillingness to learn and no interest and motivation to study, so it is necessary to encourage students to create excitement and enthusiasm. The philosophy of being comfortable in teaching and learning this is easy said but very difficult to do that requires you to be persistent and patient.
In addition to teaching, you can confide in students, via text or live chat, see what students need and like?
Safety for yourself
Female tutors are often worried about being scammed and encountering bad parents. Therefore, the first meeting of the tutor with parents and students is very important for us parent review assessment how. If someone takes you to your first parent meeting, all the better.
If you meet parents who are more interested in their children’s learning, you will feel more secure. The arrangement of teaching time is also very important, it is best that you arrange to teach in the morning or afternoon, which is the best way to help you stay late at night and is a great time for students to have a clear mind to learn. learn.
When you choose a tutoring class at reputable tutoring centers, there is almost no risk. Even though there are many families with difficult parents, stubborn students, weak academics… If you are confident with your knowledge and bravery, have a reasonable teaching method, and help your students progress, you will succeed. and respected.
Make a first impression
The first session is very important. Should discuss with parents and students about the teaching method, the focus of the course, clearly define the goals to strive for and the results to be achieved in the future. There should be a short test for students to grasp the level, advantages and disadvantages of students to orient teaching methods as well as prepare lesson plans accordingly.
It is recommended to spend 10-15 minutes in the first session for you to get to know, listen and share the difficulties and problems of the students. Experience as a tutor advises you, in addition to becoming a teacher, you should also become a friend of your students.
When going to receive classes, absolutely do not ask parents “how should I teach now”; “Teaching again from the beginning or continuing the program” are generally questions like these that your family will judge you as a person who has neither knowledge nor pedagogical skills because if you know how to teach, What do you still hire for school?
Make parents happy
Not only in front of parents, but also in front of your students, you must have the most professional working style: You must dress neatly and properly to create an approachable appearance and give yourself confidence. Students always like good-looking tutors sitting next to them, but having a dusty face, always scowling, hard to stare will make students feel uncomfortable.
Another good tutoring experience create sympathy for the parents As a tutor, you should work hard to come home early, or at least be on time. You just need to come to teach on time and leave 5 minutes late is enough for parents to have a more sympathetic view of you. On certain days of the month, spend some time talking to parents about their children’s learning, you must show them your progress, remaining weaknesses and solutions. You must always show that you are a tutor who knows how to make their child change and improve.
Knowledge is a wide sea, it is very normal for you to not know about a certain issue. Sometimes there are not difficult or basic knowledge that I forget, you just say it straight. Other parts that are out of your reach can refer students to different sources, including asking teachers. You can also take this opportunity to learn more, learn and then answer later, which also helps you to learn and improve yourself. Good luck and good luck with your tutoring!
Remember to dress modestly and neatly when coming to class. avoid causing unfaithfulness to parents and setting a bad example for students. When talking to parents, you must be firm, do not lower your head and speak in a low voice. When teaching, it is necessary to be confident, both soft and solid, with simple and understandable explanations.
You should be sociable and close to students, but make them respect you with your certain knowledge. Students are often under pressure from parents and teachers at school about academic achievement, so you need to create a comfortable psychology for them when studying, so that they can absorb well.
Absolutely do not use cell phones during the lesson. Please put it in silent mode. When it is absolutely necessary, listen and finish quickly! Video game instruction is not allowed during class time. No breaks in between classes.
Leave teaching must ask permission and teach because if you are late, students at home will wait anxiously for you, this will make parents and parents’ family members will comment well on you. Another characteristic of students studying tutoring is that students are often lazy to study with you, but if you are late, students will have the opportunity to ask for leave and reduce your teaching time. This is not beneficial for you because parents will judge you for not teaching. enthusiastic, dedicated and can find another tutor to replace you.
Create independence for children
This is an issue that a lot of householders don’t pay attention to. Today there is no shortage of tutors who have the style of helping their students get good grades without (intentionally) not thinking that doing so is harming them. Currently, families who hire home tutors to teach their children are well-off. They usually don’t have to do anything because someone is there to help them. That’s why they gradually get used to depending on others. The exercises are either copied from the solution book, or by the tutor to do it for you. They refuse to brainstorm before thinking about any problem.
Students may threaten you, may cry loudly, may speak ill of you to their parents. However, do not be too stressed to give up quickly, calm down to teach them, intelligently debug each situation. The reality of teaching muddled students is much more interesting than you might imagine. Prove that you are a good tutor, know how to “soften and let go”, understand the psychology of children so that they really value their words.
Choose a subject to teach
Before going to teach you must aim teaching object Who’s yours? If you do not have perseverance and love children, you should not choose to teach primary school students, especially grade 1 because they are very young and busy playing, do not care about learning results. . They only listen to the teachers in class, and treat them like brothers and sisters at home, so they will not listen to you.
And if you have little patience and are good at natural subjects such as math, physics, chemistry, etc., you should choose to teach middle and high school students. If you have good English, you should tutor English as a tutor. right in its favor. I find that the foreign language and gifted subjects are very high paying and not too heavy.
If you are a student, you should only accept student classes that are suitable for your ability, do not be too greedy to accept high-paid classes pretending to be a teacher. Because the classes parents require teachers to are often very difficult classes that require specialized knowledge and classroom experience to manage their children. Students are not the type to sit still like a good child for you to teach them. They will have a lot of tricks to tease and make you bored and can’t teach them. On the other hand, if you meet good students in schools, your knowledge and experience is limited, you can’t teach for long. If the class is broken, the one who suffers is you.
Make the most of every lesson
Tutors need to find out why students don’t come in, this is very important to get to the root of the problem. If you do this, you are acting like a consultant. If there is a serious problem that is beyond your control, rejection is the way to go.
Do not lecture outside rambling theories that do not relate to the students’ classroom assignments and textbooks. The theory should be related to the types of exercises and help students complete the homework given by the teacher. If you have more time, continue to do the same exercises and try to solve all the exercises in the internal workbook at school because that way students will appreciate the tutor has a lot of experience. follow the school curriculum and will trust you more.
Prepare the previous lesson at home
Do you need to teach? Lesson Plan are not? This is very important, especially in the first sessions. The first lessons you should check the level of the students to see how well then you will prepare what to convey for the next day. As for the exercises, you can compile them yourself or refer to them in advanced books and refer to the internet, then choose the ones that are suitable for the students’ level and will let them do it while studying and for them. homework.
In addition, the semester exam questions, one period test, 15 minute test are also uploaded online a lot of you just find it online. The above preparation steps will help you be more confident before the teaching sessions and before the questions of the students. Be prepared to be more confident.
Whatever you do, to be successful requires a lot of investment, for new or experienced tutors, too, this is a very necessary thing. Actually, for general knowledge for a university student, teaching is not difficult, but if you prepare a little, it will be more effective.
