I have never tutored before (which is why I only charge $20), but I have taken the classes Foundations of Teaching and Learning Math I & II. The students were not required to tutor, but we learned about high-school math concepts at a deeper level by asking ourselves questions, such as "What approaches can be used to solve this problem?", "What are the advantages of these different approaches?", and "Why do we use (name of formula) to solve this type of problem?". We also learned about DNR-based instruction, which stands for Duality, Necessity, and Repeated Reasoning.
In order for students to perform better in math classes, the students should understand the concepts, not just repeatedly answer problems. Math is fun to learn, and it is unfortunate that some students give up easily learning math.
First lesson is free since I know customers want to make sure the tutor is the right fit for them.
