Mr Mitchell R. of Saddle Brook NJ USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mr Mitchell R.
Gender: Male   Age: 18-21
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I first ask the people I tutor how they want to improve their performance and/or what material they want to cover. To ensure that I'm well-prepared, I thus prefer for the people I tutor to update me about what they want to cover before each session.
After this happens, I teach new material - primarily through problem sets. When they encounter troublesome problems, I help them along by explaining solutions and, when necessary, new concepts.
