Aleisha Mansour

What are you studying?

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.

What is a quirky fact about you?

A quirky fact about myself is that I have a vinyl collection of over 45!

What should a tutor do at the beginning of the first session?

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.

What is the most important thing a tutor must do when a session has ended?

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.

Which is a good strategy for poor study skills?

To start out by setting small goals that are easily achieved.

What do you do to teach at a level within the student’s grasp so that he or she is not overwhelmed, frustrated, or discouraged?

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.
