Professionals with different styles can be equally effective; mine works for me and my students. My approach to tutoring starts with having the student treat each subject as part of - not apart from - life all around. It also looks into other obstacles to learning, like shyness, boredom, poor study habits, and weak lower-grade preparation. Then, we build from what is known. My qualifications for tutoring include K12 and JC California single-subject credentials for English, Mathematics, Social Sciences [Economics, History], and Computer Science; TEFL and TESOL certificates; experience teaching in all these subjects; and a real enjoyment of teaching. For young and adult ESL students, I use a lot of reading aloud from one of my fables or novels - narrative and dialogue - to let me assess needs like sight-reading, pronunciation, stress, and vocabulary, and to help the student reinforce language patterns both consciously and unconsciously. For Math students, it means going back to "making change" in the market, measuring ingredients when cooking, and calculating mileage for a trip. If there are obvious gaps - e.g., not being able to do single-digit addition and multiplication - addressing those gaps must parallel work with the "real" subject, e.g., Algebraic concepts themselves. Swimming - for most people - means learning to work less and enjoy the effort more. Gliding, reaching out, and the mechanics of separating water from air while breathing are among the little things that make big differences. Other subjects - Economics, History, and Computer Science - follow similar approaches. I enjoy seeing students move from fear to confidence, from seeing a class as punishment to enjoying it as part of life, and from seeing tests as goals to treating them as mature learning devices. When they contact me months or years later to tell of their success, it is most gratifying.See more
