The Westside Tutoring & Testing Services Commitment


Teach your Students Well: Westside Tutoring & Testing Services

Teach Your Students Well: You Hold Their Hearts, Minds, and Futures in Your Hands!

Great Teachers have to have a comprehensive knowledge of the subject matter they are teaching.

If they hope to get their message across to their students, Great Teachers have to have good communication skills. 

Great Teachers must demonstrate to their students that they care about them.

Great Teachers must be able to push and prod and polish and, yes, even protect.

Great Teachers must see the radiance at the heart of every child until it can shine through of its own accord.

Students don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Are Passionate about Teaching?

Do you get excited about influencing the lives of the children whose lives you touch, shape, and mold each and every day?

If you can’t answer in the affirmative, it will show and your students will turn off to whatever it is you are trying to teach them!

Great Teachers Care More!
