I think I have covered this topic on day 19, but I thought I might tell you a little bit more about my methods, and why, in my opinion, I’ve been successful as a teacher.
I’m extremely patient while I’m working, which is kind of the opposite of who I am in my personal life. I talk to students patiently and am always willing to listen to them. I know some teachers/tutors get bother with repetition. Not me. I don’t mind explaining a concept as many times as the student might need. I’m there to teach you and I will keep doing it until you finally get it.
I have no problems with changing schedules whenever students need it. I also don’t have problems with cancellations, vacations, breaks, moving to a different day of the week etc. Just let me know and I’ll do my best to adapt to your schedule.
I’m extremely organized and I love to make lists, write good notes for students to take home and schedule good, helpful homework.
I know you can do it and I have no problem in letting you know. I won’t allow you to give up and I’ll do my best to make sure you know that you are smart and capable and that you will succeed as long as you’re willing to work.
I’m always kind and respectful. If you’re having a bad day, I’m more than willing to listen to you. Students often talk to me and it makes me happy that they look at me as someone they can trust.
