Student success is what drives me to continue. Each student who didn't understand a concept and then goes on to learn it with my help will give me an exhilarating feeling. And when you actually reach that student that others have written off as being unteachable, this can truly be worth all the headaches that do come with the job. Imagine how good the feeling is when you know that just one - a single one - student has achieved something because of you. Now multiply this by the number of students you are likely to serve each year. That's one amazing feel good factor!
You will never learn a topic better than when you start teaching it. When you're at University, you'll think you've crammed in just about everything you could possibly need to know about your area of expertise. But as a tutor, you'll find that student questions just make you dig deeper and learn more.
