Critical Thinking Skills

Asking the right question guides effective tutoring sessions. The hope is always that the right question will ignite the desire to learn, no matter who the question comes from, the tutor or the student. Questions direct thought, and thought directs actions. Questions of fact, like who, what, when, how, and where direct students to identify the process they need to take to reach academic goals.

Students are easily caught in thinking ruts due to:
Lack of self-esteem
Need for attention
Lack of time management skills
Fear of failure
Avoiding the unpleasant
Perfectionism
The thrill of it all!
