Effective Business Tutoring
Main Strategies for Success:
Steps for Successful Tutoring Sessions
Step 1 – Assess where the student stands in regards to understanding the subject and evaluate the student’s understanding with simple questions to determine what the student does know.
Step 2 – Ask the student for his or her own notes taken in class and compare it to the corresponding section in the student’s textbook.
Step 3 – Identify the specific topic from the course and relate it to a simpler topic the student does understand. Explain the topic to the student, making it as relevant as possible.
Step 4 – Work on a specific problem or example exercise from the textbook in order to apply the concept explained in the step above. Wait for the student to show you what he or she understands and use positive reinforcement.
Step 5 – Go over parts of the procedure or concept the student does not understand or in which he or she needs clarification.
Step 6 – Obtain feedback from the student to determine whether he or she understood the concept and procedure application. Quiz the student by giving him or her a similar exercise and encouraging him or her to explain it back to you.
Step 7 – Encourage the student to work on the next problem by him or herself without your direction. This way, you will truly know whether the tutoring session was successful.
