Tutoring Style and/or Experience

For many of my students, the biggest challenge is fear and lack of self-confidence so I try to give my students as many opportunities for success as I can. This means that I will begin each lesson with something familiar and move gradually to the less familiar. It also means that I will use a step by step approach that maps out exactly what the student needs in order to succeed in learning the concept for that session. I believe the best tutoring situations start with an evaluation of what the student already knows. Then I will know where there may be gaps in the student's knowledge base and I can fill in the missing information as we work. I have been teaching for 16 years and tutoring for over 30 years. I have many tried and true methods but I'm also always looking for new and interesting ways to approach the topics that I teach. My goal is that every student leave each tutoring session feeling confident, successful and equipped to handle whatever assignment their teacher has given them to complete.
