I do not have any tutoring method that I strictly stick to. I alter my approach depending on the student. I have helped friends who dropped out of high school be able to go back and remember the math they were learning more than ten years previously, even though they had not used much math if they could avoid it. I also wrote papers for my English professor, who had informed me he had a degree in linguistics, in roughly an hour yet I still graduated his classes with almost all A's. I can help students learn how to take their time and write a beautiful paper or, if the situation requires it, how to write a well written paper quickly.
Although I have no OFFICIAL tutoring experience, I do use what knowledge I have gained to help friends and family with their homework when asked, and they frequently return for my help when they realize they get better grades after having it simplified a little for them. My favorite method to use in attempting to tutor/help somebody is to try and walk them through the problem while breaking down the steps into the most simple way I can find.
A note about the $25 - $30 per hour I chose to charge: the price I will go with will largely depend on how far I am traveling as well as the specific demands of the job. One example: if the client is willing to come to somewhere near me like the library, then I am willing to charge closer to $25.
