My name is Joseph Tillotson. I began tutoring as a math faculty member at Marymount College in Palos Verdes. While there I learned a great deal about what it takes to be an effective educator. Many of my students had special needs and were quite far behind in their math studies. It was amazing to see their confidence grow once they had better explanations of the concepts they were studying. I observed the other tutors in the learning center and studied what made for an effective tutor. I formed this network shortly after starting there.
I make a point to find tutors who are patient, empathetic, and fun! A person who has these traits will often help by simply knowing when it is time to teach and when it is time to stand back and let the student figure things out. I've observed that a student must enjoy the presence of the tutor for real progress to be made.
