I am a former college student who has always excelled in all subjects, but mainly math. In math to solve problems there are rules or steps to follow, with many of those rules building on one another to solve the more complex problems. I first make sure I am familiar with all of the equations and information needed for any given problem, and then break the problem down into steps that are easily repeatable and easier to understand. I will then go over the steps and work through a few initial problems with the student. Once I feel they grasp the concepts, I will let them do a few problems on their own, offering advice as needed, and then checking their problem and providing feedback on what they did right and wrong.
I have been tutoring people in math for the past 4-5 years, with most of my tutoring just being family, friends, and friends of family and friends. I have taught around 5-6 students all together, so I am still fairly new to tutoring. I have been able to help my students pass tests that they felt they had no hope of passing before, and have helped them earn higher grades than they were able to previously achieve.
