Students can consider the following categories when giving ratings. Thus, we expect tutors to take into account these categories when teaching, ensuring that they are well met during lessons.
- Lesson Structure
- Summarizes the student’s lesson requests after introductions and enacts them throughout the lesson
- Paraphrasing & Correction (Quantity)
- Transcribes at least six sentences of the student’s responses and uses the Ringle Doc functions to provide at least four paraphrased examples with concise explanations during the 20-minute lesson
- Paraphrasing & Correction (Quality)
- Paraphrases with concision, more advanced vocabulary and sentence structures, and precision of the student’s original idea
- Exercises affirmation and patience and maintains a positive attitude throughout the lesson
- Asks relevant follow-up questions and/or share insights throughout the lesson for the student’s increased engagement
- Lesson Environment
- Has a stable internet connection and conducts the lesson in a quiet, private environment with clear audio/video for the entire lesson
As with any rating system, students may have their subjective interpretations of these ratings. We recommend taking the time to check in with your student at multiple points during the lesson to ensure you have a clear sense of their expectations and goals.
