Tutoring Approach

I have a very flexible approach to teaching that will always be led by the needs of the particular student.
I can take an unstructured approach where the student can ask me questions about concepts/themes/ideas that they are unsure about, and we can explore these collaboratively in more detail in order to cement understanding.
However, I can also take a more traditional approach of structured lessons with activities guided by a particular syllabus, or varying degrees of the two approaches.

I would discuss this with the tutee (and parents if appropriate) to find the most effective approach for that student.
