Top 5 Qualities to look for in a Home Tutor

A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others

Teachers are many, but good teachers are few. The skills, knowledge and experience required being a good teacher is much more than just academic performance; it is also the overall culmination of a positive attitude, passion for teaching and empathy for students.

This is easy said than done, and if you’re a teacher or a student, here are the top 5 qualities to look for while choosing a home tutor.


  1. Positive Attitude:

A positive attitude is critical for every teacher who wants to make an impact. Teachers who have a positive attitude are more disciplined and able to understand the behaviour of different students.  

Teachers with a positive attitude can also embrace the difficulties faced while dealing with students of different temperaments.

A positive attitude in a teacher also rubs on their students and they learn how to think in a positive way when faced with problems.


  1. Preparation:

A good teacher is someone who is well-prepared for the subject(s) they teach. The level of preparedness exhibited by a teacher is a good measure to understand how well they can teach the subject to students.

While searching for a home tutor, look for the educational qualification of a teacher.

As a rule of thumb, the more qualification and diverse experience a teacher has, the more prepared they are to take on the responsibility of being a good teacher.


  1. Punctuality:

Time is the most valuable asset, both for a student as well as a teacher. A punctual teacher understands the value of time and therefore, is punctual.

Punctuality is an important attribute for personal as well as professional success and a punctual teacher can easily communicate this to their students.

A good teacher arrives on time and also encourages their students to be punctual.


  1. Enthusiasm:

Enthusiasm is a highly underrated yet desirable quality of a good teacher. Effective teachers are always active and display a sense of enthusiasm while teaching and communicating.

To keep students active, it is important for a teacher to feel enthusiastic about their job.

Enthusiastic teachers are more supportive and encouraging students to learn and study.


  1. Creativity:

For learning vocational courses like painting, drawing, music and dance – it is important to look for a creative teacher. Creativity is a critical quality for a teacher who’s teaching any type of creative skill or course.

A good teacher will help a student flex and train their creative muscle.

A creative teacher will also help students think from different perspectives and work on their observational skills.
