I have been tutoring friends and family in all types of general computer knowledge for the past 10 to 12 years, as well as tutoring classmates and friends in mathematics throughout middle and high school. I have a Teaching Certificate for Mathematics Grades 5-9 in the state of Florida, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Sociology with a minor in Mathematics from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
When I am tutoring, the best method I have discovered is taking a problem and relating it to a situation with which the student has experience. Tying mathematical problems into our every day lives is an effective and lasting method for tutoring that has served me well in my tutoring experience. For computer knowledge, the best method is to show the process, then have the student repeat that process. As the Chinese proverb says, "I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I see and I understand."
