Tutoring Techniques

Discussion in 'Private tutors' started by Jwpe, Feb 15, 2012.

  1. Hey all,

    This is my first post on TES! I've just written a blog article about how I think tutors can improve their pupils' problem solving skills through the way that we teach. I'd be really interested to hear what other established tutors think. Do you have a fixed style which you use to tutor? How much does this vary based on the subject, or the ability of the pupil? You can read the blog at http://www.edifire.co.uk/blog/post/tutoring-ask-dont-tell/. Feedback would be much appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Jon

  3. I don't have a fixed style, as every child is different. I assess my students' individual learning styles by my initial work with them, discussion with parents and teachers if possible. I then tailor my lessons so that my tutoring techniques are suitable for the child e.g. visual, kinaesthetic etc.
