A good or great teacher is a perfect example to the students, school and the neighbouring community. They act as the role model to the students they teach. A great teacher for your child`s tuition must possess the following characteristics.
- A good time manager. Time is everything in your child`s life. Get someone who does not know how to keep time and you will be training your child to be a time-irresponsible adult. In a school set-up, a teacher should get to class in time and leave when the bell goes off. A teacher who leaves the class in between the lesson is an example of an unprepared teacher.
- Honest. A teacher must be someone who can stand by the truth always. If he/she comes to attend for your child late, he/she must show his honesty by explaining the cause. A teacher who lies should not be let to stay with your child. Remember, your child copies a lot from the teacher.
- Responsible. A great teacher must show great aspects of responsibility. He should show this by his language, how he gives out the assignments, marking of the assignments etc. A responsible teacher should not be late for classes, and if so, he must inform you before. A great responsible teacher must uphold collective responsibility all the time.
- Accessible. The teacher must be accessible to the students all the time especially when the student need them most.
- A great communicator. If you need your child to be a great communicator, then you need to find a teacher who is a great communicator. You can assess the teacher before.
- Creative. A great teacher must be creative in all that they do. Sometimes your child might ask some questions out of the topic being covered. You need a creative teacher to answer.
- Hardworking and smart worker. A hardworking teacher is like a jewel. They never get old. If you get a smart working teacher and hardworking too, you get your child not only a role model, but a future.
- Ambitious: A great teacher must be ambitious. He should look at the future and work towards it. Since your child is looking at a role model, they must learn the best virtues from them
- adventurer: New teaching methods should always be part of the teacher. Since the teacher is the driver towards your child`s success, they must be able to get great methods for your child.
- positive attitude: A ” yes it can be done ” attitude is the only thing you want for your child.
