5 Traits of a Successful Tutor – Team Tutor Style

Apr 3, 2022 by Yolanda Fontanez-Coleman | Message from CEO, Tutors

A tutor’s job is not one of just educating a student. It is more complex than that. Tutors have an enormous job of creating a personalized learning plan that meets the varying needs of their students. They must be able to target their needs while motivating the student. Building their self esteem and confidence is another part of their work. Developing a positive rapport with the student, parent and school is a huge part of a successful tutoring partnership.

In order to be successful in their career,  tutors must embody patience, positive energy & enthusiasm, and they must exhibit effective teaching skills. Tutors are not only experts in their field but they are also ambassadors of  learning and advocates for overall student success.

Our tutors here at Team Tutor not only demonstrate the above traits but they are also aligned with our core values. When working with students it’s vitally important that our tutors have H.E.A.R.T.

H: Humble: Our tutors embody respect for our students and clients. They value the partnership with all of our students and create a partnership out of respect. 

E: Empathetic: Our tutors value compassion and empathy. 

A: Accountable: Our tutors are accountable, they show up for our students and families. 

R: Responsible: Our tutors are responsible educators. They are prepared and professional educators. 

T: Team-Oriented: Our tutors along with our academic coordinators work with a team-oriented mindset. Working together with our families, partner schools and students create successful academic partnerships that last a lifetime.
