Little Words

It has been truly a joy having been a tutor for the last two years, where my teaching philosophy is that the single most important job of a tutor is to set a comfortable group atmosphere. From this, it is quickly obvious that students are very motivated to participate, dare to pose questions and automatically learn more in the process. It is generally just those few questions that can make a topic much clearer for the students, as they know best where their gaps of knowledge are and just feeling comfortable enough to pose questions can often induce students to all of a sudden “see the light”.
