A lot can happen in a week’s time, so remembering what progress was made during your last session might take some strong recall. That’s why we suggest taking notes at the end of each meeting. What content did you cover? Did you make any strides towards a goal? What should the learner be practicing at home? These short notes will help you remember what transpired during the tutoring session, and will help you review what you want to cover at the next session.
Find your Learners preferred method of learning
We all take in the world in different ways. Some of us like to have visuals, some like to hear what we must do, and others are more hands on. This applies to you and your learner! If they’re a visual learner, write down what they say and read over and over with them. Perhaps they would like to record your voice and listen to it later. Interactive games are a great way to reinforce new information. Finding out how your learner best takes in information will help you create lessons that fit their style, helping them reach their goals.
