Dani's English Tutoring
I review homework and tests to see which specific areas they are consistently struggling with. Then I give sample problems to zero in on weak areas. I also ask what areas they find difficult. I like to encourage students to ask questions and really understand subjects. I find non-traditional methods, like hands-on learning, to be particularly effective. I usually give out test samples that are easy for them so that they do well. When they see their score, they start to believe they can do it. This is a huge confidence booster. I'll continue to add just one or two challenging questions but continue to make it doable for their level.deally, I prefer a quiet area that the student is comfortable in, but I know how to keep a student on track even in distraction-filled environments.
