Hi, my name is Aleisha and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Law with a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance) at Macquarie University. I have been tutoring for a year now and love being able to help students to become comfortable within their studies.
A quirky fact about myself is that I have a vinyl collection of over 45!
A tutor should make conversation to warm up to the session, make sure the student is comfortable and to understand what the student is wanting out of that particular session.
A tutor should always end a session on a positive note, particularly if the student has an upcoming assignment or exam coming up to provide reassurance.
To start out by setting small goals that are easily achieved.
I pay close attention to how the student is reacting and if I begin to feel as though they are becoming overwhelmed, or not understanding, then I change my delivery to better suit them.
