Tutoring is an age­old practice. The dictionary definition describes a tutor as a person  who gives individual, or in some cases small group, instruction. The purpose of tutoring  is to help students help themselves, and to guide them to the point at which they become  an independent learner, and thus no longer need a tutor. To be truly effective, a tutor must combine content knowledge with empathy, honesty and  humor. Empathy is the ability to see others from their personal frame of reference. In  order for tutors to establish a supportive relationship with their students, tutors must be  open and honest. Students are often reluctant to talk with a stranger about their academic  problems unless they perceive that the tutor has a strong desire to listen. Humor can also  play an important part in a tutoring session. Shared laughter is a powerful way to  reinforce learning and can set students at ease. Humor can also be used to compliment, to  guide or to provide negative feedback in a positive manner. Above all, a successful tutor demonstrates a caring attitude. Being organized for the  tutoring session, being punctual, establishing a learning relationship with the student, developing unique teaching strategies, and becoming familiar with the learning process are ways to demonstrate care.
