Commitment / Other Details
The only commitment i have is schooling, currently in NUS.
Yes i can start immediately for a year. Mostly weekday nights, Thursday afternoon-night.
Rapport Building
Normally i will buy sweets for the students to make them happier when they are having lessons with me.
As for the parents, normally i will keep them updated about their childrens' progress and tell them what's right and what's wrong for them to be notified about it.
Keeping Up with Curriculum
I have friends who are teaching tuition now and i can easily access notes and papers from them.
As a Good Tutor
Being responsible is key. As a piano teacher, my practice is to pass the student a notebook. Each time i will write what i had gone through in class with him and then immediately the next week i know what's going on and proceed with what i had left off.
Knowing your tutee's strengths & weaknesses & commitments. Knowing their strengths and weaknesses will help the lesson. Also, commitment wise, if they have huge work commitments eg many tuitions, i won't give too much homework because it doesnt help if he turns up for class not doing any work.
