Learning any subject can be challenging. This challenge is amplified when one takes into account that no two students learn the same way. Everyone learns at his or her own pace. Thus, I believe it is important to maintain a relaxed attitude in any kind of teaching setting; thereby demonstrating that students do not need to be anxious about learning the subject material. In fact, I encourage students to inform about any concerns they might have and I will do what I can to assist them. Such feedback is crucial if I, as the tutor, am to improve myself for the benefit of both my current students as well as my future students. Success in this regard is only possible when there is a two-way line of communication between the tutor and the students.
Therefore, I want to make the tutoring experience for my students not only enjoyable, but challenging as well. A tutor that does not challenge his or her students is, in my mind, not doing their job. That is, I want to help students succeed on their own so they do not have to rely too heavily on me. Of course, I'll help guide them from time to time, but only they can walk the path of their success; I can't do it for them.
