Become A Tutor

Tutoring is an age-old practice. The dictionary definition describes a tutor as a person who gives additional, special, or basic instruction. Other definitions stat that a tutor is one who guards, protects, watches over, or has the care of another person. It sounds like a heavy responsibility. It is, and if done properly, it can be one of the most generous and rewarding things that you can do.
The purpose of tutoring is to help students help themselves, or to assist or guide them to the point at which they become an independent learner, and thus no longer need a tutor. Annette Gourgey of Upsala College writes, "the most profound education that students can receive in tutoring is not about a specific subject but about understanding how to learn, and about their personal role in that process."
