Tutoring involves finding the right method to use so that the student comprehends the concept(s)and learns by understanding the material; not by memorizing it. Students who are just interested in grades or studying only for a test need to find another tutor!I am interested in increasing learning so that a student will eventually not need tutoring. So I concentrate on the way the individual student learns and assist the student in developing techniques that improve learning. I also present the subject matter in such a way that the student learns, retains and builds. A grade on a test is just that. I also work on test taking skills and strategies. My goal is for the students to know more than they did before tutoring. After all, it is what you do not know that hurts you.
