It's not just about the student
For those tutors who assist school aged clients/constituents/customers, I just wanted to share something with you that is intended not only for you, but the parents and the students.
Tutoring is not solely about the student. Tutoring is and must be a concerted 360 degree effort. It is beneficial to you, the student, and the students' family to provide resources, materials etc. so that the skills can be reinforced at home. Not only will your efforts be greatly appreciated but they will ensure that the student feels confident and continues to practice his/her new skill sets. I hope this helps.
