Need tutoring, kids? It’s great — recognizing that you have a problem is the first step towards solving it. But since some of your teachers will be giving up their valuable time to give you this after-school boost, try to make their job a little easier. For example… bring your textbook! You can’t count on the teacher having your textbook in his or her classroom, especially if they don’t usually teach the course in which you need help. And even if they do teach the same course, if you aren’t in their class, it’s possible that their class is at a different point in the curriculum than yours. So it’s wonderfully helpful if you can correctly identify the chapter/story/assignment that you are currently studying in your own class. A good start in — oh… let’s use English as an example — would be the ability to correctly identify any of the following:

  • The title of the story you are studying, or…
  • The author of the story you are studying, or…
  • The basic plot of the story you are studying, or…
  • Failing that, maybe just know what grade you’re currently in.

Following these simple steps, tutoring can be a fun and beneficial experience for everybody! (Not a guarantee.)
