First to understand how the student approaches the task and/or material.
Then create a plan together, on how to improve or develop a successful method to succeed.
Execute the plan, with continued feedback towards improving methodology (how we do it!).
And a continued loop, using the student's strengths (visual learner/conceptual learner...).
Listening to the student.
I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and worked in the field of precious metals for a dozen years. I loved trouble shooting and problem solving.
I taught in urban high schools for a dozen more years. Who knew being good a high school math was a career? I always tutored on the side to sharpen my teaching skills. I found working with a student one-on-one helped me understand how my classroom students might be thinking. I had the opportunity to work with a variety of different students including a few autistic students. I loved trouble shooting and problem solving.
With every student I tutored, I explained that a good tutors job is to teach you how to not need them. The point is to help the student develop the skills to teach themselves and an usable approach to practical problem solving.
