The UNC Greensboro tutor assessment and evaluation form is very helpful because it explains in depth what each score means. However, it is far too long, and I think the majority of students would neglect to read it all. Consequently, I think the attitude and approachability categories should be combined. I also think that attendance could be deleted. In addition, I think that the modeling category could be incorporated in learning skills or deleted altogether.
Although I have not had extensive tutoring experience this semester, I will do my best to evaluate my performance for the few appointments I had. In the category of attitude and approachability, I would give myself a 3. I believe I am positive and friendly, and try to make the client feel as comfortable as possible. In the category of processing time, I would give myself a 2. I feel like I need to allow the client more time to think critically on his or her own before I interrupt with my ideas. It can be difficult to let a client struggle with a concept, as I have the urge to help. Therefore, it is my goal for next semester to give the client sufficient processing time. In regards to learning skills, I would give myself a 3. I try to offer suggestions in time management and note taking skills, as my clients have all been freshmen who are often not aware of good study habits.
