If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that anyone can be a tutor. A tutor’s job is to empower their listeners by teaching them a new skill set. Tutor voices, therefore, need to be reassuring and affirming even when the students are giving wrong answers.
Tutor voices are patient enough to accommodate the different needs and learning abilities of all their students. These voices are supportive and often adopt mantras like ‘you are doing a good job’ and ‘I am here if you need further assistance.’
Tutor voices don’t have the luxury of sounding cocky, and they also don’t have an air of importance around them. These voices are loved by audiences of all ages because they are there to guide and fill in the blank spaces in their listeners’ minds with knowledge. Singers, chefs, and people who are just trying to pass their time all use local or internet tutors to expand their knowledge. Narrations, commercials, video games, and animations also use tutor voices to bring these characters to life.
Tutor’s play around with their voices and include demonstrations and pictures when necessary. They cannot afford to have a monotone sound and bore everyone to death. Tutors are educators, and in as much as they must remain professionals, fun and unconventional tutors have also been successful. Tutor voices are adaptable and versatile, open and empathetic, and they also carry some level of enthusiasm. These voices need to be expressive, confident, and patient since everyone learns at a different pace.
