What is a Tutor Lesson Plan?

A tutor lesson plan is a comprehensive plan that contains specific ideas, prioritized goals, procedures, and tactics that are created to help learners greatly improve their skills in different subject areas such as mathematics, science, English or any particular type of language they need to learn, etc. This plan is like a roadmap for the tutor on how he or she will provide support the students need so that they can attain achievements in their studies.

How to Write a Tutor Lesson Plan  

Daniel R. Sanford wrote in his book “The Rowman & Littlefield Guide for Peer Tutors” that tutoring can be often frustrating but it is indescribably rewarding. It offers endless opportunities for growth for a scholar, an educator, or a person. It will compel you to observe the things you’ve learned as a student in new ways and to reevaluate what it is to have knowledge. 

In this section, we provide some helpful tips that you should think carefully in writing your lesson plan: 

1. Identify the individual learning objectives

As a peer tutor, you are a practitioner while being a student yourself. You bring with you to your tutoring work your grounding in another field of study and your acquired knowledge with the tools and pedagogies of that field. So, you need to identify the individual learning objectives for your students depending on their needs and preferences.

2. Design an outline about specific learning activities, procedures, and strategies 

The tutoring program for your students is a source of support and guidance for their education. The book “Peer Tutoring: A Guide to Program Design” suggested that your program should be designed to provide short- and long-term tutorial assistance such as enhancing students’ overall performance and study habits, increasing student retention, etc. So, you need to design an effective outline about specific learning activities, procedures and strategies for developing their skills and fortifying their academic independence. 

3. Set up a logical sequence in your lessons 

Pablo Picasso, a Spanish painter, said “Paintings are but research and experiment. I never do a painting as a work of art. All of them are researches. I search constantly and there is a logical sequence in all this research.” So, imitate Picasso as you set up a logical sequence in each lesson in an interesting manner to profoundly encourage your students in their studies.

4. Create a realistic timeline

To create a realistic timeline, you should narrow down the list to two or three main concepts, ideas, or skills that you want for your students to hone or acquire and adjust your lesson plan during your tutoring class depending on the needs of your students as recommended by The Center For Research On Learning and Teaching University of Michigan.  Additionally, estimate the time duration of each activity and plan extra time for each. 

 

FAQs

What are the 5 steps in a lesson plan lesson cycle?

The five steps are the anticipatory set, introduction of new material, guided practice, independent practice and closure.

How do I start my lesson?

Start your lesson by using a video, an object, a question, or a movement. 

How do you plan a lesson primary?

Be expressive about the subject you are teaching. Consider the diverse needs and requirements of your pupils or students. Ascertain that the lesson is relevant and provide it context. Establish clear, concise objectives. Or create a backup plan.

How can I start my English lesson?

Maintain simplicity and always check for understanding. Give them ample time to practice. Use some effective illustrations and demonstrations. Constantly use positive reinforcement. Avoid being boring so keep yourself enthusiastic and smiling to empower your students. 

Being a personal tutor for children, teens, or young adults, your work requires a great deal of adaptability, focus, skill, emotional energy, and decision-making. If you are an amateur to personal or peer tutoring, you may think of approaching another academic colleague to be your mentor. Also, the use of models or frameworks of reflective practice can encourage a structured process to guide your thinking, learning, and your application of new knowledge. To assist you with your lesson plan for elementary, middle school, or high school students, we have included several plan samples that you can use.
