5 Bits of Advice About: Being a form tutor

  1. Have clear and rigid boundaries; ensure the students know these.
  2. Establish basic routines early on and stick to them. Even if the kids don’t like it they are YOUR routines, make them do it.
  3. Be nice, don’t come in first day all guns blazing and expecting the students to respond well to you.
  4. Be firm but polite, I have seen many teachers be rude and humiliate kids. I just isn’t nice. Model the behaviour we would accept as adults.
  5. Make time to get to know the kids, they are your bread and butter!
