I aim to build a strong working relationship and trust between myself and every student I come in contact with. My experience as a teacher over the years has made me realize the importance of this singular trait.
I have also learnt that being easily approachable is a vital characteristic a tutor should have.
I also aim to create a genuine interest in the subject! Once that interest is sparked it becomes much easier for students to motivate themselves, a skill which will help them extract as much joy as possible from all their future learning. I also like to engage my students in conversations that take us well beyond the sometimes restrictive syllabus.
I like to also encourage my students to quantitatively track their own progress through results in mini-tests and exercises. I find that if a student can clearly see the progress that they have made so far, then the hurdles that they have yet to jump seem just that little bit more manageable. Helping students to track their own progress is especially helpful during revision time, when a sense of progress can really help combat the familiar revision tension.
