I first evaluate the student and the current situation in the class, seek to understand the student/parents' goals, and work together to come up with a plan to meet desired goals. Although I do spend time to help students complete their homework, I really emphasize the need to master the material and develop needed skills to optimize test scores. Students sometimes get a bit frustrated with this since they often just want to get the homework done and finish. But the overall goal is for the student to master the material and to have needed skills to ace tests. This involves learning strategies for getting problems right the first time and also to do problems in such a way to maximize possibility of partial credit if the student doesn't get the correct answer.
