The proof is always in the action, to get an idea of how tutoring works in practice check out some feedback from tutors. Typically tutors focus on strategies needed to make progress, what's going well and what needs improvement. Of course, every tutor has their own unique style that is tailored to your child's specific needs.
Yasmin has some solid learning strategies, including talking aloud, pen to paper, desire for understanding, avoiding lazy thinking and not being defensive. Learning strategies that are close to satisfactory are back checking, note taking, good corrections, positive self talk, seeking teacher for help, avoiding rule dependency, problem solving skills, belief in self and that it is okay to be wrong. Her self questioning and lateral thinking are close to being satisfactory.
Dylan's attitude towards learning is fantastic. He always puts in a lot of effort, and is not happy with his work until it is perfect. His work habits, as mentioned above, are constantly improving and it is definitely paying off! He is a fantastic student with a thorough work ethic, and it is a pleasure tutoring him.
At this stage his mathematical understanding is strong and he has boosted his confidence with success in his work. He still needs some support for complex mathematics in unfamiliar situations which require deciphering the problem and choosing the appropriate mathematical approach. This skills is increasing and will continue to do so as he focuses on increasing and applying his mathematical skills. None that I am currently aware of.
It's got off to a great start, Beaux really likes Taran and she likes the way Taran explains things and shows her new ways of working things out. Taran has boosted her confidence and Beaux is actually able to do a lot more than we thought.
We are very happy with Thai and the tutoring set up. Massimo and Thai have established a comfortable routine and it appears to be working for everyone involved. I can see that Massimo's confidence has already improved and he has regained his motivation.
It's all going really well Beaux breezed through a recent test of percentages that she and Tara had covered and which she had previously struggled with before. I will certainly recommend you to anyone who may need tutoring.
