A Tutor reviews class assignments, discusses the content, and assists students with homework problems. If a student has a particular difficulty in a subject, the tutor works with them until they succeed in understanding the subject. They also encourage students and build up their academic confidence by giving the student positive feedback and helpful suggestions. Tutors may also develop training or teaching materials to help the student as well.
Tutors can also be considered role models that help motivate students to try their best in school and in life. Though tutors can be the same age as the learners they teach, they are often older than their client’s and this can provide them the opportunity to be a mentor as well.
