How to encourage tutees to contribute

|

Whilst some students take very easily to private tuition, others can struggle with the intensity of a one-to-one session – it may be very new to them and, particularly if they lack confidence in their abilities, they may find it hard to contribute at first.

You’ve been employed to help raise attainment, plug skills gaps or enhance subject knowledge, so taking time away from curriculum learning to focus on communication skills can sometimes seem unnecessary, but by encouraging your tutee to contribute more, their engagement and understanding will start to improve and they’ll be likely to build more confidence at school – all of which can be part of improving results and passing exams, so a bit of effort at first is well worth it.

Talk to parents/guardians and/or teachers who may be able to recommend approaches that may work or suggest reasons why your tutee isn’t responding well. Class teachers are likely to find this level of communication particularly useful, as you may be able to tap into new ways of motivating and encouraging particular students through 1-1 learning, that is harder during whole-class learning.
