Technique /Approach to Tutoring:
My tutoring technique includes assessing student's strengths and weakness of the basic prerequisite knowledge needed to perform well in the course and strengthening those skills and knowledge base as needed. In parallel, I will be directly working with the student covering and working through the present material to keep the student up to date in school classes and assist in the completion of homework assignments to insure timely submissions with full credit.
In preparation for tests and quizzes I will assist in a summary review of
the material to be covered. My emphasis in the learning process is to focus on learning the basic concepts and then working through various problems in application of these basics. Once the student is confident of the process of applying the basic concepts to initial problems there will be no need to spend tutoring time on repetition of similar problems.
My primary goal is to assist the student in the learning process to make it enjoyable and to build self confidence in his or her ability to tackle new subjects that will help them as they pursue their chosen career." less...
