More About Our Austin Science Tutoring
If the student needs the tutor to bring supplementary study materials, please let Jaclyn 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 (ie. Genetics, Dimensional Analysis, Thermodynamics, etc.) and how comfortable he or she feels with that concept.
For Chemistry and Physics in particular (which are more math-based by nature), the tutor will allow the student to read the first set of directions on the assignment, and then let the student attempt the homework problem on their own. That way, the tutor can get a better sense of where the student is getting stuck. 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 then 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 better idea of how to tackle a problem, then he or she can try again on their own. If the student continues to struggle, the tutor will ask guiding questions, offer a more in-depth explanation, or explain the problem in a different 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 question type (what the question is asking for), and apply the necessary steps in order to arrive at the correct answer.
