Be sure to secure the area you will be tutoring in from outside distractions: children, pets, acts of God. While it’s customary to have the occasional distraction, it will signal to the student that they can take the same liberties and then some (depending on the student of course). I have no lock on my office door, so I’ve taken to using a rubber band to secure the door. It’s not sexy, but it works. It prevents having little faces creep into the screen repeating in overly cute voices: “Hi!…. Hi!….Hi!”
