"As an effective tutor requires that I address the following :

--What the student does NOT know?

--What does the student want to know?

--What is the student’s learning style?

-

With sufficient insight into answers of the above, develop a plan that builds on their strengths so together, we can tackle the flip side of the student’s knowledge base.

To that end, I will continue to seek those techniques that, when deployed, allow me to better serve my students:

HOW TO:

• Adopt the “best practices” of teaching & tutoring to fit the student’s motivations and needs

-

• Deploy self-paced, self-administered learning aides to provide 24x7 tutoring support

-

• Inculcate a love of self-learning that will serve the students throughout their lifetime

-

• Be responsive to the diversity of each student

-

• Deploy complementary computer-based learning systems." less...
