Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is to ascertain from the student the topics the student needs help in. Next I investigate the person prefer ways of learning to ensure that the person can understand whatever I explain to them. I am of the view that you must first understand the concepts of what you are learning and then acquire the tools to unable to solve the problem(s) in front of you. Understanding breeds confidence and confidence leads to improvement in learning.

I use difference approaches to solve a problem and the allow the student to use the one he or she feels confident with. I also encourage students practice solving problems to increase their skills set. I monitor progress by giving weekly homework
