Communication is KEY

Welcome ASC Tutors!
Communication Skills

No Show
Intiatives & Programs
Be Confident. Communication will occur. If you are unable to express an idea, do not panic- if repeating does not help, try a different mode (writing or drawing) to help clarify an idea.

Try not to show disappointment. Avoid responses such as “No, I just told you that five minutes ago,” and “Haven’t you got that yet?”

Use body language. The importance of body movements cannot be overemphasized. When saying “yes”, nod. When saying “no” shake your head. Facial expressions and other non-verbal forms of expression are essential to effective communication.

Speak in short sentences. There is a certain art involved in eliminating unnecessary words from your verbal and written communications. Interactions are enhanced when this is realized.

USE YOUR RESOURCES: Don't forget to communicate with Professors and ASC Staff!!

Before you become an effective tutor you must an effective communicator. It is necessary to be sensitive to your tutee’s needs before you can communicate effectively with him/her.
