Many of us remember having a tutor during our school days. They may have been a friend of the family, an older sibling's friend or perhaps someone sourced from the local paper or community notice-board. Whilst some of us were lucky enough to develop a great rapport with a tutor, chances are that such instances were few and far between. Unfortunately, kids often find themselves being tutored by someone they just don't get along with, and this can have serious implications for their learning.
Meet this week's Spotlight, All-Star Tutor-Mentor Steph Vawser. Steph is studying a Bachelor of Primary School Education (Honours) at Monash University. She loves Musical Theatre: rehearsing for local productions, watching musical DVDs and musical theatre clips on youtube, and putting on soundtracks and singing along to them.
