I tutor students and most of my sessions are one on one. How do I make a student feel that he belongs to a network?
The standard textbook approach has always reminded me of Johnny Cash’s song, One Piece at a Time, and gives similar results. The students, the few who persevere, have a lot of bits and pieces but they don’t necessarily fit together very well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uErKI0zWgjg
“Children who are habitually criticized, humilated, or shamed internalize negative feelings about themselves that hinder their healthy development. By contrast, children accustomed to loving support and guidance are much more likely to become healthy and productive citizens.”
