Introduce yourself and make the student-athlete feel comfortable. The first a tutor should do at the beginning of the first session is to have an introductory period. This time should be dedicated to introducing yourself, knowing more about the student, introducing the subject plan, and ultimately building rapport with the students to make them feel comfortable.

During the introduction class, the tutor should take time to ask questions about what interests the student and what things motivate and excite them at school and life in general. This could be TV shows, music, books and so on. All these will help the tutor get a sense of who the students are. It will help put the student at ease, create the right environment for learning, and also help establish the course plan.

The first thing that the tutor has to do is to make sure that the student and the athlete will both be comfortable. This way, it will be easier for them to talk to each other. The more comfortable they are, the easier it will be to explain the lessons that the person may not understand.

Tutors are like teachers, too, but the setting for teaching is usually more relaxed. This allows the students and athletes who would need to boost their grades to concentrate better. They will be able to incorporate the lessons that they have learned to the quizzes that they have to answer and so much more.
