"...My method consists of asking students the right questions so that the students can figure out the problems themselves.

"One of my mentor teachers was fond of saying, "Teach the child, not the subject", meaning that the student comes first - before the curriculum, before the test scores, before the tutor. I've learned to incorporate this ideology into my own teaching practice by differentiating instruction for each of my students.

Once a student knows how to learn, whole new worlds open for them and the actual material is a matter of course.."
