## Frequently asked questions

### What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I spend a bit of time getting to know the student. A tutor can only help a student as long as the student trusts him/her. When I get to the work at hand, I make sure to diagnose a student's understanding. What are they confident in? What do they need help with? The actual tutoring part will be based on students' needs, and the goal is for the student to demonstrate progress in their ability to understand a given problem. If a student has demonstrated significant progress then I reward them with a delicious homemade milkshake.
