OTHER QUALITIES WE LOOK FOR
An Encouraging Attitude
Distance Learning tutors need to be helpful and encouraging. Tutors who “smile” with her/his words can make all the difference on any given day when it comes to student morale.
Tutors need to be patient with their students. A caring tutor will contact them either by email or phone and spend time with them, addressing any issues they might have with the course material if needed. Taking time to explain questions and ensuring the student has an understanding of the lesson before moving onto the next topic, is essential, if they are to have a rewarding learning experience.
- Technological Competency
We expect tutors to be competent with IT since this is the medium used by most students. ADL offers IT support when needed.
Maintaining student motivation throughout the course is one of the key elements for ensuring a successful outcome. You, the tutor through your Feedback, play a vital role in achieving this goal.
