I spend one session getting to know the client and learn about strengths and weaknesses. I tailor the tutoring experience to the students strengths and at the same time I shore up the weak points. I use some standard testing books to help the student track their knowledge. If there are achievement tests, I will use their curriculum to help the students achieve the highest possible results.

I tailor lessons to students' needs and do not believe that every person fits into a mold. Each person is an individual and has specific strengths and needs. I tutor children k-8 and also adults who desire to excel in English. I rely heavily on vocabulary and grammatical and phonetic instruction. (I am able to get anyone reading within months.
My teaching method is based on an "I do, We do, You do", starting with a learning goal and objective that has a check for understanding. Then moving to the "I do" which typically involves a visual review and reminder to students that models and explains what we are working on. Then the "we do" moves into an engaging activity that involves the topic that we just went over.
My only teaching method is that I only care about developing the most natural technique and musicality. I don’t stick to any “methods” because teaching piano requires the most flexible and individual approach while keeping the highest standards of education no matter the age or current level of the students.
My teaching method is based on questions. I want my students to have complete mastery of the subjects that I tutor. Furthermore, I have a tremendous amount of patience and will make sure my students understand the material. I like to give students practice problems to make sure they are getting the material.

As an MA in Linguistics, I teach high school students, college students and adults through a combination of dialogue and hands-on activities. My lessons are a conversation rather than a lecture. I teach through a combination of kinesthetic, visual, and auditory methods.
My teaching methodology is dependent on the needs of the student - be it an essay on Jane Eyre or an upcoming SAT - but I strive to give my students specific, easy-to-remember rules that help motivate them to write, eliminate the fear of writing, and unlock their creative potential in the essay format.
I have no unique approach to all students. My first session consists of 'getting know of each other' and 'determining the right approach'. Each student is different and I has different needs, so I always try to find the best 'teaching style' for each of them.
I look to evaluate what topics need reinforcement the most and which of the details or finer points the student seems to be missing that is causing them difficulty. I then try to teach alternative methods or new ways to approach the problems as well as explain how they can use and understand the textbook and online resources while they are not working with me.
My style is student centered where they are encouraged to use their critical thinking skills to attempt the problem on their own first before asking for help. I help my students learn how to ask the right questions so that they can figure out future problems with less dependence and higher confidence.
I employ an fast-paced, upbeat approach that guarantees an improved grasp of the subject matter and a greater confidence in approaching every writing. Many students who struggle with writing fear even getting started. My hands-on approach is designed to motivate students to write with confidence.
I've worked primarily with undergraduate and graduate students. I believe that every student is different and every session will be different. Therefore, I believe in approaching each student in a way that they believe will work for them. It's important for the tutor to ask questions just as it is important for the student to ask questions.
I feel all individuals have the tools and mechanics to achieve. At times, it just takes specific individuals to assist in unlocking certain areas of the mind. "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.

I graduated from university last year with my a degree in Political Science and a minor in history. I approach each topic through applying it to everyday life. For example when dealing with history I try to make it relate to the student.
My focus is to give each of my students a way of approaching answers through conceptual thinking, so they don't have to rely on pure memory. We will begin with a NBME, the standard of determining where you stand. I will analyze your NBME based on the nature of the bar distribution. We can determine a strong lesson plan from that point.
My teaching method revolves around Constructivism; I relate new information with things that students already know and things that are of interest to students in order to make my lessons as dynamic as possible; my lessons structures include sets of different activities per hour.
