Maths tutoring - Past work

To give the subject some significant context, I think it would work to start a theme by initial reviewing its benefit. Then I would certainly go through some simple instances. I must emphasise that there are no stupid enquiries, anything to help a student's understanding is vital. After I have actually run through a few cases, I wish to have the student run through their own instance, speaking with me as if they were the tutor and I was the tutee.

Many studies have actually shown that aiming to describe a concept you have actually just discovered helps exceptionally in memorisation as well as comprehension. If I'm satisfied with their training, I wish to test their critical thinking by setting a problem based on everything found out in the lesson, yet with subtle changes that call for the tutee to proactively engage with the work, instead of be on "autopilot".

Home task will be set on the topic reviewed (nothing too extreme), and also even more lessons will be carried on addressing exam-styled enquiries before moving on to the following topic.

During lessons I 'd like to encourage a rather casual, friendly atmosphere. I have a good time teaching, and I wish students have a good time in my training sessions, and an unwinded mind is better at studying.
