Goal Setting Strategies for Tutors
The first session with your student is different in structure than subsequent sessions. You will have the first session to get to know your student, to do some informal assessment of his or her skills, and to set goals for your time together.
Helping students to articulate their learning goals can be challenging. Often students expect their teachers to just "know" what it is they need to learn. However, there are ways to assess students’ skills and to help them determine what their learning priorities are (understanding what they need to use English, Math, Science, etc.)
