TO THE TUTOR;
CARRY OUT REGULAR EVALUATION ON THE PROGRESS OF THE STUDENT.
You can do this by assessing the student's performance in the following areas;
1. Overall performance [attendance; diligence; turning in homework on time; effort]
2. Spontaneous spoken English [practice outside the classroom setting; showing improvement or not; application of learned knowledge to both written and spoken English]
3. Vocabulary [increase or nil increase in knowledge of words and their meanings]
5. Parts of speech
6. Essay writing
An evaluation is a tool which enables the tutor to competently keep track of the student's progress or lack thereof.
Evaluation also enables the parents, guardian or supervisor - as well as the student - to keep track of progress.
A copy of the evaluation is given to the parents/ guardian/ supervisor and student.
The tutor retains one for his or her records.
The evaluation is treated as confidential by the tutor.
The evaluation should be discussed with the student as relevant.
The evaluation should encourage the student to strengthen areas in English in which she or he is excelling, and realise where areas exist which need to be worked on.
Best wishes with your tutoring!
