How to Tutor the Adult Learner

How to Tutor the Adult Learner

Most of the time, your tutoring students will be school-aged children. Sometimes, however, you may be approached to tutor an adult. An adult student could be someone who is doing upgrading in college, or an older adult who is changing careers and needs a refresher to get into a different program.

It is important to respect and understand your adult learner. As a tutor we should be promoting the idea of people being life-long learners, and we should also be doing that ourselves. Continually working toward being a more effective tutor involves learning and growing.

Adults may face a lot more stress and pressures in going back to school or procuring tutoring than children might face. For example, adults will be juggling family and work, and now adding being tutored to the mix. Adults may be facing pressures to pass exams for upgrading in their work, or they might not have family support in their learning endeavors.

As a tutor you will want to be very sensitive to these issues. In the end, as their tutor you will need to balance being sympathetic to their issues and demanding the right amount of commitment from them to ensure they get the most from your tutoring.
