Here are some possible starting questions:
When getting to know your student, its also important to leave time, either in the beginning or towards the end of the tutoring session to ask your student about his or her concerns and questions. This will further aid you in preparing a focused lesson plan for your next tutoring session.
After letting the student know a little about yourself, ask questions about the student and his or her background. If possible try to relate what what you learn about your student and use it in the tutoring session. When explaining a concept for example, you could give examples from what you learnt of the students favorite sports or hobbies. Relating the material personally builds trust, it shows that you are interested in knowing your student personally. A foundation of trust also builds confidence, it may even help your student to increase his or her rate of learning comprehension.
