Chalk Talk: How to Choose a Tutor
It is important to choose a tutor who has a method of teaching that works with the way you learn best. Most people are visual, auditory or kinesthetic/tactile learners. A visual learner receives information and skills through what they see. An auditory learner receives information through what they hear. And a kinesthetic/tactile learner receives information using a “hands on” approach. If you are able to discover your own learning style, then you can use that information to find a tutor with the teaching style that works best for you. If you are a visual learner you may want a tutor who uses pictures, movies and diagrams to teach. If you are an auditory learner you will want a tutor who will give you lots of verbal communication and lectures. If you are a kinesthetic/tactile learner you should choose a tutor who offers you a hands-on approach to learning. You can ask your school counselor to help you find out what your type of learning style is then choose a tutor that will work best for you.
