Hello there! I am currently a USC graduate student. I have tutored people in the past and have led discussion sessions for mathematics college courses from calculus I up to linear algebra. I like to keep my mind sharp and I love seeing people get to know and appreciate math like I do, so tutoring on the side might actually be beneficial!
He's a good tutor and is easy to understand.
I get to know them first! I want to know their motivations and use said motivations to help me help them.
I am currently studying as a PhD candidate for mathematics.

I started tutoring when I was in high school. I had decent grades and some family friends knew about it. The rest is history.

You never know if you click together unless you give them a shot first. In anime, there is this thing called the 3-episode rule, where you watch the first 3 episodes to get a feel for the show before committing. The same could be applied to tutors.
They should try to make their questions as concrete and specific as possible. Teachers are not omniscient: they won't know what you need and how to remedy your needs unless you're clear about them.
