We are three high school students. You are probably thinking "that's unprofessional, why would I want my child to work with them?" Our answer to that is we ourselves are still technically children and we personally know how intimidating it can been trying to learn when an adult is correcting everything you do, this is why kids tend to ask help from friends in class rather than the teacher. So we like to create friendly relationship with our students so they feel like they're just getting help from a friend which makes they more comfortable asking for help and more likely to succeed.
She’s really nice, it’s easier to learn from her then my teachers.
Ms.naomi was really nice and she helped me get a good grade for English.
We take a moment to talk about the students interest and try to find a common interest so they are more comfortable with us. We then ask what they are struggling with and why if they know then try to come up with a solution if possible. We would then get into the tutoring and we have different ways of teaching based on the student but we always remember to keep it fun and keep them interested because as students we learned lack of interest is one of the biggest reasons why students tend to struggling. For example one of my sixth grade students likes to sing, her mom said it distracts her in class and she thinks writing essays is boring so we came up with a song to help her remember what Order to write a persuasive essay in and she did very well on her test.
We are all sophomores in high school but we are all taking 11th grade English. We volunteer for our schools tutoring program and have been tutoring outside of school for years. I personally was told by my 6th grade teacher that I should start tutoring because I was academically passing up her 8th graders.
