TOP TIPS FOR TUTORING • Reduce your stress levels by reading the paperwork and planning in advance. • Always, and from the start, challenge poor attendance vigorously. • If you have tried to sort something out with the student and it hasn’t worked, involve the parent and/or someone above you in the hierarchy. • Know where to go, and when your students should go, for further support and take them yourself. • Always try to focus on how you can raise the engagement, the self-esteem, the aspirations of the individual you are dealing with at that moment. • Invest yourself and care about your tutees, but know when the young person’s situation or needs might swallow you up. At that point, move the matter on. • Keep yourself safe – do not communicate via social media, give out personal mobile numbers, avoid holding one to ones in rooms without a glass door, etc.
