    The purpose of tutoring is to help students help themselves or to assist or guide them to the point at which they become an independent learner, and thus no longer need a tutor. Our play a vital and multifaceted role in supporting students’ academic learning. Here is an overview of the role tutors at Phakamani Young Minds Academy:

    The Tutor as a Helper
    Our tutor’s role is to help students to learn and problem solves on their own. Tutors do not just give students answers; rather, they are ready to help our students begin to make progress toward a solution. They are trained to understand that learning is a process of comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. To assist in actively becoming involved in the learning process, tutors help students to:

    • Know the type of problem being solved.
    • Understand and use the vocabulary of the subject.
    • Practice the application of principles.
    • Realize that all learners make mistakes but that learning from one’s mistakes is a very effective way to learn.
    • Perform the work themselves.
    • Verbalize what they have learned.
