My tutoring method is geared to the age and learning style of my student. I encourage my students to use as many of their senses as possible for learning a single skill. For example: I teach students to learn their multiplication tables by demonstration. I close my eyes and recite a multiplication table out loud.
I have recently gained experience as a volunteer tutor and was gratified to see that my students improved in their performance and attributed their improvement to me personally.
I know how to study effectively. I have demonstrated that ability by achieving a BA and an MD. I also became a Board Certified Medical Specialist. After retirement from the medical profession, I achieved a 4.0 average in a Paralegal program.
I occasionally had to tutor my three children when they encountered rough spots in school. I encouraged them to find their own way of studying and when I saw that they were succeeding on their own and receiving excellent grades, I let them continue alone unless they asked for help or I saw, by teacher meetings or report cards, that they were not achieving up to their potential.
