“Education is not the filing of a pail, but the lighting of a fire” ~ William Butler Yeats
Tutors help ignite the flame of wanting to learn within students. Tutoring is more than just a tool to improve a student’s grades. It is an opportunity for a student to intellectually develop themselves in order to become an even better student. Tutoring is not just a Q&A session, but rather a time when a student is able to get help discovering their intellectual path and their creative interests. In the long run it boosts a student’s confidence and self-esteem because they are now able to more consciously and effectively make changes to their study habits and see the results that come from those changes.
Tutoring is effective because:
Its a New Environment
It Develops Intellectual Independence
It Provides a One-on-One Relationship
