Keeping Up with Curriculum
As a Good Tutor
A good tutor should be able to observe the strengths and weaknesses and learning styles of the student. There may be a need to deviate from the teaching of "hardware" or subject content to address important issues such as using the appropriate studying methods, building good habits and exam skills (such as time management) as well as motivation.
