Tutoring Style and/or Experience

My approach to tutoring can best be described as gentle, but stern when necessary. I usually like to take the student through the steps when problem solving. I go slowly and check with them to see if they understand the steps as I move along.

After doing a problem for them and walking them through it, I like to set them to work on a similar problem. Doing this shows me how well they do with understanding what I showed them. If the student seems to pick it up well I try to throw in a few tricks that I know used to cause me trouble so as to spare them the mistakes they would have made on homework or a test.

If, on the other hand, the student seems to have trouble with the basic concepts, I like to make them work through a few problems of a similar nature following my step by step examples. This helps identify the area they seem to have trouble with. Although this can sometimes cause students anguish, as they complain over doing the same type of problem over and over again, I have found it is also the best way for them to learn the concepts and remember them for when they are needed.
