Karissa D. of Las Vegas NV USA Tutor Profile
Tutor Personal Information
I have been known to be very effective in instructing students of all skill levels. My style is very relaxed, patient, and logical. I tend to relate problems as practical examples that may be less abstract and easier to understand. The first aim is grasping the concept/beginning to understand, and the process after that is refining the simple concept and expanding its uses. I also challenge the students to make sure they are understanding and not just passively agreeing to understand. For example, I might ask the student to explain what I have just said in their own words. Material that is generated by the student is the best remembered, generally, and strict lecture loses student focus. Thus my sessions are interactive and fun, while strict and educational. I easily adjust to the student's level of understanding and accordingly change the lesson presentation for maximum understanding and achievement.
