Provide the tutor with some background on your child’s progress before the first lesson. Give some indication of the objectives for the lessons.
𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐫𝐭 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐩𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐩𝐭𝐥𝐲:
Make sure your child is ready and prompt for the lesson. You may have to provide some help for the first lesson with setting up a Skype account and access to a Google document shared with the tutor.
𝐁𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐝𝐲 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐧:
If your child requires help for a specific piece of work make sure that before the lesson they load it onto the Google document - with correct title and instructions.
𝐀𝐥𝐞𝐫𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐮𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐨 𝐭𝐨𝐩𝐢𝐜𝐬:
When your child suddenly requires help with a particular task or topic gives the tutor some advance notification. Lessons will be more successful when the tutor has had a chance to prepare in advance.
𝐊𝐞𝐞𝐩 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐭𝐮𝐭𝐨𝐫 𝐢𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐥𝐨𝐨𝐩:
Keep the tutor informed regarding feedback from the school. Tutors are able to reinforce positive feedback from teachers, thereby building the pupil’s confidence.
𝐑𝐞𝐠𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐫 𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐧𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐞 𝐦𝐨𝐬𝐭 𝐞𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐯𝐞:
Regular lessons are more effective than lessons every other week. A weekly slot builds momentum. When there is a two-week gap between lessons pupils tend to forget concepts from the previous lesson.
