About the lesson

Before I do anything, I ask the pupil a lot of questions about how they would solve a problem and why. I believe that allowing a student to work through a problem and explain what they understand helps solidify techniques. I've found that students are often surprised about what they actually know about problem solving and can often figure the problem out by themselves. I think this is especially helpful for test-prep and concept mastery. However, if my student is struggling to grasp a concept I try and explain the concept in different ways, whether it's setting up a problem differently, drawing pictures, etc.
