...This subject requires abstract thinking, which is why so many students struggle. It's not that they aren't ready to think in this new way - they just need lots of time, practice, and patient understanding. I'll be able to quickly diagnose where your student's trouble spots are and how he/she approaches the assignments.

...These require extensive interactive examples and discussion. My general approach in a 1-on-1 tutoring environment is interactive. I can explain concepts and illustrate methods, but the student isn't learning until he or she does something with it.

There is a range of study skills I employ which are commensurate with each student's abilities. These include the use of index and/or flash cards, repetition, outlining, and reviewing, to mention only some. These and other methods are particularly important when tutoring ESL and special needs students.
