  • The LVA staff is here to help! We have a library with curriculum that tutors can check out for their students. Come and see!
  • Be patient and remember to stay focused on the student's needs, objectives and means of success rather than your own. Be patient, be patient, be patient!
  • Find out what specific things your student needs and focus on those things.
  • Be confident and know that all education is a step-by-step, week-by-week endeavor.
  • Be patient and listen to what the learner really wants from each session.
  • Be flexible and search until you find materials that are of interest to your student.
  • It may be hard not to impose your own goals on your students. They must be allowed to set their own pace, which may not be your pace.
