The Difference You Make:
Tutoring is a rewarding experience, though it may be challenging at times.
No matter what kind of tutoring session you had with your student, remember that you made a great difference in his or her life because:
• He or she was able to spend one hour with an adult.
• You were able to engage in conversation with the child.
• Your time together presented an opportunity for the child to ask questions and be heard.
• By praising their hard work, you gave them a feeling of worth.
