Why Become a Tutor?

One of the best ways to learn something well is to explain it to someone else. You'll find gaps in your own understanding that you didn't know were there, and you'll find ways to fill them in. You'll see topics from someone else's point of view, and thus come to understand more aspects of the subject. It looks great on a résumé too! While tutoring is appealing to many students, those wishing to become teachers will find the experience particularly helpful. Plus, you get real job experience related to your career!
