Most, if not all teachers, tutors or educators alike aim to inspire their students and to make a difference in them and their future.
As quoted by wiki, “Education in the largest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character or physical ability of an individual. In its technical sense, education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another.”
And this noble duty to be able to impart knowledge to our young requires….. PASSION!
A tutor with the student in mind and tries to understand their learning habits or what makes them learn is definitely a good example of how putting yourself in one’s shoes definitely helps. Students hate boring lectures read seemingly from a script or rote learning in your typical primary or secondary school. Good tutors makes a point to inject what is required into an otherwise dead and dry topic to make the subject alive!
Here’s a video of MIT Professor Walter Lewin which very much exemplifies how being a passionate tutor can make a difference in your teaching style and more importantly, in your students’ lives.
As quoted by Professor Walter, a physics professor.. “If you don’t love physics, it means you’ve had a bad teacher!”
