them how to think through problems so that they can apply their knowledge to different situations. My approach varies depending on the student. For younger students I find it can often be important to make a lesson fun, but informative, I feel that this helps them remember a lesson. For older students I find that providing a good background to a problem can really help their understanding of a concept. Overall I feel that learning...

While I'm happy to do off-the-cuff explanations, I think you'll get a more coherent one if I have...
