The learning's completely at your pace! Here at the Girma Tutoring Center, helping students understand the concepts they're being taught is the number one priority.
I spent a part of my sophomore and junior years of college teaching University Physics 2: Electricity & Magnetism so I have experience communicating complex topics in a simple way. I've taken math classes all the way up to Differential Equations, so I know first hand how the subject builds on itself and how to study for these classes. Overall, I've decided to tutor not only because I love math and I truly believe in every person's ability to understand the information, if it's taught properly to them.

It depends. If the student only plans to meet for one or two sessions, I mainly work to help them understand the topic of the work they're doing during that session. However, if the student plans to meet more consistently, then I would spend the first ten minutes doing introductions. I mainly would want to know what subject/topic they we're struggling with, what is their learning style, and how can we help you get back on track in your math class.
As a mentioned earlier, I've spent time in college teaching Physics with Calculus to about sixty students every three to four months. I have experience working with students both students who fully understood the material and students who didn't.
I started out helping a family friend's daughter and taking up a job as an undergraduate teaching assistant for a Physics 2 class. Tutoring at both levels at the same time gave me the opportunity to learn how to teach more technical topics clearly. I also realized how much I love teaching.
I've worked with midde school students, high school students, and college sophomores and juniors.
Good questions students can ask themselves are, "How do I determine whether I understand a topic or not?," "Are there any trends with the mistakes I'm making?," "What exactly do I want to learn in this next tutoring session?."
