Tutoring has been my "hobby" ever since high school. I would tutor my classmates and friends. I went to college in Europe (Belgium) where I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Chemistry. I worked as a private tutor in Math and the Sciences to complement my scholarship. I eventually ended up in New york for my Masters. There I created private tutoring network. Many times callers were friends or relatives of students I tutored in the past.
My tutoring approach is as follows:
At the first encounter I ask specific questions that help understand areas of difficulty. I always give a summary of what we'll be doing and a review at the end of session. I strongly encourage students to ask questions as we go on, and not move on unless they understand the previous.
As stated above my tutoring experience has been built on the tracks of my academic pursuits. Today I still enjoy doing it on the tracks of my professional life given my occupation provides for a lot of flexibility.

He should set himself at the intellectual level of the student by using a language and methods that the student easily comprehends.That is what you will experience by yourself.
We communicate test taking strategies within the vast array of chemistry: fundamental atomic theory, acids and bases, stoechiometry, redox, thermochemistry, calorimetry, nuclear chemistry, organic chemistry,...
