How to become a good tutor?

Draft a quick small assessment to give to student in the beginning of lesson. Have a look at the syllabus and do preparation before starting lesson to any new student.

Step 4: Hold a valid police check and/ or working with children check / Blue card

Step 8: Regular monitoring to track the student’s progress.

Take regular quizzes, tests and perform quick assessments to the students for the topics covered in past 2 -4 weeks. Continuous evaluation of the student’s efforts and understanding of concepts will help them in revising the topics frequently and improving their academic performance.

Step 9: Record student’s lesson details in Timesheet 

Two copies of lesson record forms need to be carried per student for every lesson. One for student and another for the Tutor. The timesheet record must be signed by parent/guardian after every lesson. It must not be signed by any person under 18 years of age. Download  Time_sheet here.
