Well, the one time I tutored was not very enjoyable. I love learning and love teaching people things I know, but the girl I was tutoring was six years old and came from a very wealthy family. She was spoiled and VERY bratty. She was in love with me and looked up to me, so I felt bad getting aggravated. She didn’t listen and kept running off. She was basically failing reading and English and spelling in first grade and refused to sit still and listen. I tried to make it as fun for her as possible and agreed to play with her afterward, but the way the child is used to having things at home makes all the difference. If you are unlucky and stuck with a kid who doesn’t want to learn, that’s why they get bad grades and are suggested to get a tutor – they have potential but just don’t care. I have worked with kids that actually care and just struggle, and they are sweet and adorable. I love little kids, but really love little kids that enjoy learning and realize that there are times to play and times to study. Just go into the tutoring with an OPEN MIND or it will be miserable for the two of you.
Good luck and I hope this helps! 😉
