1. Sincere enthusiasm
True enthusiasm for achievement and success. This cannot be faked. Students can recognise insincere gestures. However, when tutors are sincerely enthusiastic and passionate, that’s contagious.
Whether it’s giving proper instructions for understanding, acknowledging mistakes during a challenge, or putting family matters first, we exhibit integrity at all times. To do what’s right that's our bottom line.
3. Great communication skills
Leaders must motivate, instruct and model for those we support. They can accomplish none of these things if they aren’t very skilled communicators.
The best leaders understand that true loyalty is reciprocal. Because of this, they express that loyalty in tangible ways that benefit every student for every subject. True loyalty is ensuring that all students have the support and resources to perform well in their subjects.
A good teacher or tutor has faith in their ability to teach others and develop understanding and instil confidence in the learner. Because of this, they have the willingness to empower those they teach to act autonomously. It is said that this comes from trust. When students are empowered, they are more likely to make more improved decisions in the learning process and achieve well in their subjects.
