why body language is important in tutoring
Why Body Language is important in tutoring
  • During a tutoring session, body language can be used as an important tool to achieve a productive tutoring session, or it can as well expose a tutor who is not really interested in the tutee’s issue.
  • Attention and coherence between body language and verbal expression is important in order to build a good relationship of trust with each tutee.

  • words,
  • tone of voice
  • body-language.
albert meharabian s rule5
Albert Meharabian’s rule:
  • non-verbal expression is peculiar for communicating feelings and attitude, and if words and body language disagree, one tends to believe the body language
albert meharabian s rule6
Albert Meharabian’s rule:
  • “3 Vs” (verbal, vocal & visual) account differently for our liking for the person who delivers the message:
  • words account for 7%,
  • tone of voice accounts for 38%,
  • body language accounts for 55% of the liking
personal experience
Personal experience:
  • after watching the video tape about my tutoring session, I was very surprised about my body posture and the way I was too close and protective with my tutee. Besides, my hands were really hyper-active.

Jeff Brooks, in “Minimalist tutoring”, suggests how body language can reinforce the fact that: “the paper belongs to the student and that the tutor is not an editor” (85).

  • Sit beside the student- It shows the student that the tutor is not the one “in charge" of the paper.
  • The student is the one physically closer to her paper-The tutor observes the tutee works on her own paper.
  • The tutor should avoid holding a pen in her hands- so that the student herself has the responsibility to correct her paper.

conclusion
Conclusion
  • Tutoring is a great opportunity for both the tutor and the tutee to grow culturally and to establish a relationship based on trust.
  • Of course it takes time and experience to be in constant control of our body language.
  • However, it is a mark of professionalism for a tutor to know and practice body language strategies.
