"First I “check in” with the student to see where they are and what they need help with. I am knowledgeable about different learning styles and preferences and if I am able to determine that a particular student is stronger with learning visually rather than verbally, or vice versa, I can alter my tutoring style accordingly. For example, I use drawing pictures and graphs to explain concepts, instead of just describing them verbally. I am patient with students who need repeated explanations of concepts. After determining where the student needs help, I am able to explain the concepts and follow-up to make sure the student understands.

I have successfully tutored students in math at the community college level. When the student brings in worksheets, I go over the first problem or two, explaining the concepts and procedures needed to solve the problems. Then I watch the team member do the next problems to see if she has understood the concepts and procedures being taught.

Also, when the team member has taken a test or exam, we go over the incorrect answers to see what mistakes were made and re-emphasize the correct way to solve the problem. I also will explain to my students about preparing for exams, and what to do before, during and after an exam.

My tutoring experiences have included students in their late teens through the adult years." less...
