Tutoring Tips

Preparing for a session

If possible, find out what the student wants to work on BEFORE you meet

Exchange contact info in case there is a last-minute cancellation

Choose a quiet, well-lit area

Bring pen/ pencil , notepad , other resources? (e.g., textbook?

When you meet for the first time

Introduce yourself

Get to know the student a bit (e.g. Why did you choose to study this course? How are you

feeling about it?)

Discuss their overall goals for working with a tutor

During the session

Sit next to (rather than across from) your student, so the two of you can work together

Ask questions and offer clues, rather than simply providing answers.

Give clear explanations and feed back .

Cultivate independence

Demonstrate HOW to do something, and then ask the client to re-teach you .

Make sure the student is the one actually doing the work (i .e. D on't just take over !)

Offer additional examples/ questions to “ quiz” the student

Aim for improvement and long-term growth—not perfection!

Ask for explanations of answers—particularly incorrect ones.

Observe and use nonverbal cues (body language, tone of voice, etc.)

Offer praise and encouragement, but without being phony

Acknowledge progress, even if there are stillstru ggles/ error s

Never ridicule incorrect answers

Share your own struggles and strategies , if the student seems frustrated

Be OK with not knowing

If a student asks a question you cannot answer, follow-u p later , or take some time to look it up online
