...I always make sure my students understand basic concepts and principles when learning new subjects. I present the subject matter with a lesson plan, and at the end of each lesson I review the relevant material by asking questions and giving quizzes on material learned in order to solidify understanding and foster critical thinking. This is not the only way, though.

...I have been tutoring privately in Russia for about five years and now I am working part time in a community college. I moved to US 20 years ago. I know from my experience that explaining the idea from a different perspective can make a big difference.

...I have done graduate level work in linear algebra, which helps me see the subject from a broader perspective than someone who has only been exposed to undergraduate linear algebra. I have also tutored linear algebra using conceptual and problem-oriented approaches. In addition, I use linear algebra methods regularly.

...I have found that this greatly increases my students' motivation and ability to learn. There is nothing gimmicky about the way I teach - I use textbooks and require that students complete homework. Regardless of the subject being addressed, I teach content, problem solving, test taking skills, and organizational/study skills.
