Pros: witnessing the successful student growth
Cons: occasionally slow paced growth
I learned that not every day is the same when it comes to personal school tutoring. Of the handful of students I have taught, none of them learn the same.
I prepare and coordinate lesson plans that work with each student every day. I need to be prepared for how they will react and how they grow.
Perceptions change as a student grows. When the student does well they tend to lose focus as they feel able to take on any assignment. As this excitement is encouraged, it is important to teach they can always improve in another area.
The hardest part of the job is the patient and slow progress.
The best part of the job is seeing the results and knowing my students have grown to graduate from studies I guided them through.
