When working one-on-one, Mr. C. teaches by first finding specifically where the student needs help. He then builds confidence and skill by asking progressively harder and more complex questions.

While this leads to some initial frustration, it ultimately leads to a student who is more confident and knowledgeable, as they learn to identify and correct their own mistakes.
