Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My tutoring style might scare you. I like to watch very closely how a student approaches an area in which he or she has been struggling with. I like to observe how a student goes about solving a math problem or fixing a grammatical error, or in Japanese, the way he or she makes a brush stroke. I enjoy the approach-get lost-struggle to find and answer-fail-try again-keep trying-success process. It helps me to understand how a person thinks. And by understand THAT, I am able to deliver my tutoring capabilities in a manner that will suit the student best. I believe that many individuals perform alike, but that all individuals think differently. I get a learning experience out of this too! By applying the right leverage to the student's needs at the right time and place, a student is able to realize or find the answer his or her own way. It's like having training wheels. A bike looks like an oddly-shaped and intimidating piece of metal, but once one learns to ride it, it could be quite pleasurable. Right? So my tutoring experience has always been like that. Usually I end up making friends with my students just because it always works out like that. I like to solve problems together, collaboratively. Learning is a collaborative process between student and teacher. You can't work collaboratively if you can't get along with your fellow collaborator. It just doesn't happen. Well, it does. But there's no fun in that. Right?
