The number one rule of teaching is that there are no rules. A good teacher is able to adapt his or her methods for each student. In order to do this, the teacher has to listen to the student and try to understand how the student thinks. From my experience, the two most common methods that work are: 1) encourage the student until he or she can figure out the material on his or her own. 2) walk the student through a sample problem step by step. Afterwards, guide the student to repeat the same steps on his or her own. After a few repetitions, challenge the student to solve a similar problem that requires a slightly different set of steps.
