Here are my tips to making tutoring more FUN!!!
1.WHAT TYPE OF LEARNERS ARE THEY?
Get to know your student(s). See what they like and how they learn best. Take some time to give them a short survey or questionnaire about themselves. You will learn how easily they understand lessons that are equipped toward their specific learning modality (auditorial, kinesthetic, visual, etc.)
2. GET UP AND MOVE!
Don't sit down the whole session. Make it a fun and energetic session to remember. Try to incorporate movements into your lessons. This works great for the little ones. Or try out songs or rhymes for older kids.
3. TAKE SMALL BREAKS
Depending on the student(s) of course, give small breaks in between the sessions. Allow students to stretch out, close their eyes, get some fresh air and then regroup. Less is always more, so don't over kill explanations, break it down.
4. HEAR THEIR VOICES
Give students the chance to speak out their thoughts or feelings. Students learn best when they hear others and themselves. Let them give the feedback to you and do most of their thinking out loud.
