The Importance of Student Feedback
Continued student feedback is vital for the success of the student and tutor. You, as a student, know when you are stuck on particular grammar points, words, sentence structure, and need more explanation.
The tutoring process differs from a regular classroom setting. In a classroom, the teacher may have 25 students. He/she does not have time to explain beyond a basic point. A tutor, however, makes sure that you know and understand in real time. Whatever it takes.
As a student, you need to be very vocal, and give the tutor a chance to choose another way to explain until you understand perfectly. You need to finish the class knowing how to apply what you have learned.
I encourage all of my students to tell me if they don’t understand the concept. Tell me as many times as you need. I will make sure you understand before the end of class.
So, speak up, be involved. Never be shy about needing to go over a concept several times, several different ways.
Learning a language is difficult. You hired a tutor for a specific reason; personal attention.
Make your voice heard.
