What Tutoring is all about... my thoughts

Typically, private tutoring sessions last just one hour per week, and it is important therefore to be realistic about what the goal is.

Ask yourself the questions:

    why am I opting for private Tutoring?
    what are my child's particular requirements?
    what are my goals?
    how will I determine success?
Below are some of my thoughts....
I only have one hour...
What I cannot do is "teach Maths" or "teach English"...
So what can I achieve?
    enjoyment, focus, motivation, enthusiasm, the love of learning, confidence, self-esteem, worth, value...
If I can develop and foster these feelings, I firmly believe that the capacity and yearning to learn is greatly enhanced both in and out of the sessions.

I cannot "create an Einstein", but I may be able to undo any damage that may have been done, fill any gaps in Maths or English that may have arisen, boost a confidence that may have been crushed, foster a self-belief that may have been lost, change a fear of learning into a love for learning...

I can spend an hour playing with numbers, enjoying challenges, reading poems, explaining, listening...
The hour is focused, motivating, invigorating, enjoyable, confidence boosting...
It's an hour well spent.

to be continued...for ever!!
