Sophie

I am a student at Tufts University studying Peace and Justice Studies and Sociology. I have a variety of experience tutoring K-12 students in all academic subjects. I strongly believe that each student learns differently. Therefore, I ensure that my teaching skills are adjusted so that they are an ideal fit for each student I tutor.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

When a student is struggling with a particular skill or concept, I believe it is crucial to get to the bottom of the student's confusion. If there are core concepts that this idea builds upon, I would ensure that the student had a deep understanding of the more basic ideas. Then, I would use techniques to build on the core idea until the larger concept is understood.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I believe that practicing a particular concept, be it reading comprehension or geometry, helps solidify understanding. If a student gets a practice question wrong, I would work with the student to figure out their thought process and explain the error. The tutoring company offers great practice questions and resources for students to use with their tutors.
