"...Beyond memorizing discrete facts and equations, I have found that the best approach is to begin with broader ideas and from there focus in on how the question fits in with the subject.

"... When I begin working with a new student I try to first determine their strengths and weaknesses so that I can use the strategies that will be most helpful to them individually. A student who remembers formulas easily will do well with step by step instructions, but a student who does not will benefit more from a conceptual understanding and lots of practice. The strategies I use might include using visual aids, hands-on materials, step by step instructions, conceptual explanations, extra practice, and modeling. I also believe building student confidence is one of the most important steps on the path to success..."

I don't mind a student interrupting me if they understand the matter at hand - there's little use in me explaining what they know, and if there is another purpose, I'll simply say so..."
