Making Tutoring Fun!
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Tutoring does not have to be rigid and strict. Of course, there should be some type of order and structure when providing tutoring lessons and engaging students in their studies, but it should also be fun! Think outside the box and create an environment in which your students will want to come back and learn with a sense of enthusiasm and excitement!

Creating structure and order

Before establishing an objective, make sure you know the needs of your students....what they are like, what subject matter(s) they need development in, what goals they have set for learning and also let the students know the goals that you have set in order to foster a productive learning environment and in order for them to be successful as well.

Be Proactive

Visualize what you want to do ahead of time before you enter the tutoring session - make a plan! Set the atmosphere! As Hiam Ginott, a school teacher and child psychologist once said, "it's my personal approach that creates the climate. It's my daily mood that makes the weather." What a wonderful quote, don't you think?!?! Keep your students engaged by providing them opportunities to process content through activities such as simulations, hands-on experiences, etc.

Bring out the FUN!

As we know after working on a particular subject for a prolonged period of time the brain tends to get tired and the student can get irritable. Break the ice! Stop, breathe, relax. Play a game. Do some jumping jacks! Bring out the puzzles and flashcards. Have a sense of humor and smile. Have your student(s) engage in sponge activities. There are loads of web-based resources that you can find to assist in finding sponge activities. These activities soak up time in an educational way and provides a mental refresher for the student and the tutor.

The Finale

Tutoring, whether online or face-to-face can be a rewarding experience. There are many factors that will contribute to your success such as the ones mentioned above. Remember to keep a positive attitude, set the atmosphere, be prepared, maintain order and control, and most of all let there be fun! Loads of sponge activities are available to engage the students and can also be a helpful way to review work content. Be consistent. Communication is key to a successful relationship between the student and the tutor. This content is geared more towards younger students than older students. However, these suggestions can be adjusted accordingly. Much Success!
