What I Want From A Tutor
 
The qualities I have come to expect from tutors, is a good honest effort. A good example of this is the tutors of my past, they all have good writing and communication skills. They all have there own way of improving student confidence. I know if it weren’t for the tutors in the writing center I might not have got as far in English as I could have with out the tutors. I found myself going back again, and again. Some time I would do about five drafts a paper getting feed back on every new draft. Half the time I was fishing for the good points or not so good points on my paper, thing I could improve on. I would read the body language and their verbal prompts to determine the low-n-high points of my writing. The tutors/Writing Center has helped me put onto paper some of what’s is in my head. These tutors are willing to share their back ground with the students to draw from experience or to show the student the tutors’ qualifications. One of the nicest qualities in a tutor is the patient used is working with students. Tutors should never be condescending but more up lifting, and positive. A good tutor knows the rules and expects every one to fallow them. A good tutor is a tutor first, then a friend second.
Above all a good tutor will install confidence in the writers’ ability to write. This is the most important thing a tutor can do. I am a standing testimony to this. I spent most of my education in special reading classes, afraid to read out loud in class, and could barely pass my spelling class. The only real problem I had was confidence with reading and writing. If I had a tutor back then to install confidence in my abilities, I wonder if my education could have been more empowering, I might have went strait to college instead of waiting so long. What if I never discovered I have the ability? Thanks to my support group at CR and down in the Writing Center, I now have been placed in a position where I can help empower, encourage, and install confidence in other writers.
