Tutors are Cheerleaders!
Jill Abrams Tutoring, Inc.
At Jill Abrams Tutoring, Inc., our tutors realize that motivation is especially tricky during
these unpresented times. Online learning, wearing masks, and lessened social interaction has
put a damper on students’ motivation, and it is up to teachers and tutors to re-engage our
students. There are many tactics we use to accomplish this task, but our core engagement
strategy is to be our students’ cheerleaders. When our students succeed, we succeed! More
importantly, when our students struggle, we get excited as well because we know where we
need to put our focus. Our students are never met with negative speak or bad feelings when
mistakes are made. We celebrate instead! Every mistake is a beautiful opportunity to help
strengthen areas that need attention.
It is extremely important to us that our students have fun at tutoring! We want our
students to look forward to each session, so praise and reassurance is used regularly. When
students are having fun while learning, they are more likely to retain the information.
Moreover, when students have fun while learning, they want to learn more! That’s definitely
something to cheer about!
