    Ideal tutor would be:

    *Experienced enough to be able to actually teach students
    *Feeling passion for their subject
    *Being strict but at the same time friendly and approachable
    *Someone who is always there to support you
    *That interacts with the students instead of just teaching them

    Firstly : A good tutor understands their subject and has complete confidence to answer difficult questions.

    Secondly : A good tutor should have a high degree of common sense. They must be able to adapt their lesson.

    Thirdly : A good tutor should be professional, but also friendly and supportive in order to encourage. Basically how a tutor portrays his or herself.

    Good Luck
