“Home tutoring is an integral part of any education system” SCIENTIA EDUCATION
Question: Why home tutoring?
Answer: Every child is different and their needs are different. It is impossible for a teacher who is taking a class of forty students to individually monitor each and every child, especially in a country such as India where the emphasis is on completing syllabus rather than imparting quality education. So there is always a need for someone to provide individual attention to your kid.
Question: How to become a good Tutor?
Answer: Tutoring is the process of getting students to become independent through questioning. Tutoring should help students develop self-confidence and improve study skills. In addition, the tutoring session should provide students with an opportunity to speak up and ask questions, an opportunity sometimes unavailable or missed in a regular classroom situation.
Tutoring is not teaching. There are important differences between the role of the tutor and that of the classroom teacher. Approaches, relationships and techniques are different. The tutor works in very close proximity with the student, usually one-on-one.
Experience the joy of making a difference by becoming a tutor. You’ll be part of helping somebody grow and learn and become who they are meant to be. You will also put your skills and expertise to good use.
Question: Are Youngsters Good Home Tutors?
Answer: The answer according to SCIENTIA is a Big “Yes”. Home tutoring is customized service. A person who has been teaching for 20 years maybe a good exam tutor but one can not guarantee that the teacher will be flexible enough to suit the demands of every individual as the experience has made him stuck to particular method of teaching, whereas a youngster is open to all avenues and does not follow a particular style of teaching. And second most important point is that kids connect better to youngsters.
