The Ballad of the Contact Sheets However, personality conflicts do occasionally arise. Let the Student Support Services director know immediately if such a problem exists between you and your tutee.
While you were gone I could not remember
I decided to read All the students you had seen.
What you were doing The thought of lost data
For students in need Turned me red and green!
With your contact sheets So I drew a deep breath,
And a cup of hot tea Of my wits took command,
I started to scan, And wrote you this ditty
But what did I see? So you will understand.
Lots of blank spaces! These sheets are important,
Lots of blank verse! More than you might think.
Lots of blank lines! They are keys to success
But what is even worse…. In paper and ink.
When site visitors come, But what is more important However, personality conflicts do occasionally arise. Let the Student Support Services director know immediately if such a problem exists between you and your tutee.
Like most federal folks, To folks you assist
They talk and they listen When your notes and ours
And tell a few jokes Are put on a list,
Then get down to business A profile develops
With pencils in hand That gives us a clue
‘Cause numbers are all To why students fail
That these guys understand. And what we must do.
They count all the times All of this data
We have worked with a student. Helps us to assess
Not to record contacts What the student needs most
Just is not prudent. And what he does best.
So next time you are tempted However, personality conflicts do occasionally arise. Let the Student Support Services director know immediately if such a problem exists between you and your tutee.
To put off until later
Your session recording
Remember the gator
Who waited until daybreak
To hunt for his meals
Got caught and made into
A pair of high heels!!!!!
PLEASE ENTER YOUR CONTACTS IMMEDIATELY AFTER EACH SESSION!
The most important thing a tutor needs is patience. A tutor also needs to feel empathy with his/her student and be a really caring person. I always try to help my students to develop positive self regard, good study habits, and good study skills. I have found that a great majority of the students I have worked with do not know how to study. Teach your students the study skills that work for you such as the use of 3 x 5 cards. Help them to develop skills and techniques of their own. Teach them that it is more effective to study every day for 30 minutes than to cram for four or five hours. Some students are overwhelmed by the huge amounts of material they are required to learn. Teach them to break the material into smaller, more manageable parcels.
Remember the three most important things are:
