Being a good tutor is not simply possessing thorough knowledge. Nor is it entirely about patience. Equally, a good tutor is not merely clear, concise, organized, flexible, demanding, or recondite. Somehow, he must be all these things, and more. My personal philosophy is that tutoring is not merely a relationship in which knowledge is transferred, but one in which the student is fired with a lifelong passion for learning. Hence, the process of learning is not merely a transaction; it is also an inspiration: a good tutor cultivates the entire intellectual potential of his student, rather than an isolated ability in Math, English, Physics or Social Studies. In this sense, a good tutor is a teacher, but also a mentor.
