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

First, I try to get a good understanding of what the student's goals for tutoring are! Based on these goals, we will create an agenda for the sessions together. It is important to me to set goals for a session ahead of time so that the student has time to engage with the material beforehand. 

I think being willing to adjust goals based on what is working and what isn't is just as important as setting them in the first place. I communicate with students along the way to understand how they think things are going, share my perspective, and adjust to find a better individualized strategy if necessary!
