Tutor Tip of the Month: Improve Your Listening Skills

(courtesy of Benicia Adult Literacy Program)

To become a more effective listener, try these tips:

  • Concentrate on the speaker
  • Maintain eye contact as much as possible
  • Listen to the content of what is being said
  • "Listen" to body language
  • Try not to interrupt
  • Listen for the things that are not said
  • Keep an open mind
  • Watch your own body language. Is it open and receptive?
