Assigning Homework

I just answered a poll about how often I assign homework for my tutoring sessions and I think my answer is probably a bit different than say a math tutor.

I rarely assign projects outside of what we are working on in the traditional sense because, with Photoshop and Lightroom, the student can really get confused if they aren't exactly sure what they are doing and then can't get back to where they started.

I prefer to to have my students go online and find samples of what they are exactly looking to accomplish and then go from there...there are some instances where I will show them exactly how to do it, but otherwise I want them to play around with my supervision because it can become very very frustrating when something you've worked on for hours just disappears!
