"Aptitude comes with attitude!"
Teaching is an easy job but teaching well is a difficult task. I believe a teacher/tutor should understand the weakness of the student and tackle it. At the same time, the teacher must not be complacent and take the student's strong topics for granted as the student may grow rusty in those areas. In the end, the student may not score in both strong and weak topics. Teaching indeed requires great patience. I have been teaching my own younger brother since Primary School and he is at his GCE 'O' Levels this year. I was also an instructor during my National Service. I fully comprehend the need to stay patient with the student. It is important that we aid the aptitude of student and equally crucial that we correct the attitude of him/her. If the attitude towards learning is lacking, teachers ought to rectify it immediately. After-all, without the will to improve, no matter how much the teacher educate the student in terms of knowledge, nothing constructive will go into his head. Thus, I believe a mixture of patience and stern teaching (when needed) is required to attain strong results.
