More About Our Austin Math Tutoring
If your student needs the tutor to bring supplementary study materials (extra worksheets and practice problems), please let us know in advance. We are happy to provide these items, but we need to know ahead of time so the tutor can plan accordingly.
To begin the session, the tutor will ask the student what he or she has been learning in class recently (ie. Dividing Fractions, Solving Systems of Equations, Geometric Proofs, Trigonometry, etc.) and how comfortable he or she feels with that concept.
Typically, the tutor will let the student read the first set of directions on the assignment and then let the student attempt a homework problem. That way, the tutor can get a better sense of which step in the math problem the student is getting stuck on. This process answers the question: Can the student start the problem on their own? If the answer to this question is no, the tutor will demonstrate how to accurately perform a homework problem and verbally explain each step of the process along the way. For some students, it will be helpful to write these steps down.
Once the student has a stronger grasp on the mathematical concepts and necessary steps, then he or she can try another homework problem on their own. If the student gets stuck again, the tutor will ask guiding questions, offer more in-depth explanations, or explain the problem in a new way. The goal of this process is to create independence and confidence within the student so that he or she can tackle problems efficiently and with ease.
By the end of the session, the student should be able to read the directions, recognize the type of math problem (what the question is asking for), and apply the necessary steps in order to arrive at the correct answer.
