“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      – Walt Disney

Procrastination is a big problem for many students when they’re trying to study. Walt Disney didn’t build his dream by putting things off. This quote can inspire kids to get stuck into their work and do what needs to be done.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                             – Nelson Mandela

Sometimes it’s easy to feel like nothing you do really matters, but as Nelson Mandela demonstrated, those who believe in themselves can achieve great things. A solid education is the foundation for a brilliant life.

This quote reminds us that it’s not the work that seems insurmountable but our attitude towards it. The first step to success is conquering the mental barriers holding you back.

“We need to accept that we won’t always make the right decisions, that we’ll screw up royally sometimes – understanding that failure is not the opposite of success, it’s part of success.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                  – Ariana Huffington

“Genius is 10% inspiration, 90% perspiration.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                              – Thomas Edison

This quote serves as a reminder of the agency each person has in creating their own future. This means trying your hardest at school and learning to overcome obstacles and setbacks with grace and resilience. 

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”

                                                                                                                                                                                                       – Eleanor Roosevelt

How a Tutor Can Motivate Students

A tutor can provide a source of motivation and inspiration by giving students the support they need to succeed. Students who work with a tutor are less likely to feel stressed and anxious due to the individual attention they receive. They can take as much time as they require to master a concept and ask as many questions as needed.

At Tutor Doctor we offer a free consultation to assess your student’s needs. We develop a customised program based on each child’s academic goals and use an advanced matching system to pair students with the right tutor for them.
