I believe in sitting down with the student and identifying their points of weakness as well as areas they excel at in the subject. Once I've assessed what their capabilities are, I like to use visuals to help them learn. After I've demonstrated, we tackle the subject together, and then I ask the student to teach me. I believe that both visuals and teaching others are the best ways of reinforcing subject material. I also like to throw in fun exercises that make learning enjoyable. I believe patience and listening are key concepts in being an outstanding tutor.
