...lead me to a position as a TA and lab technician in Phys 406: Physics of Music Lab. In total, I have tutored for about 8 years. My favorite facet of tutoring is exploring the different ways in which students learn a topic. An explanation that resonates with 90% of students, may not clarify...... I feel a student does not know, until they can do. Thus, my approach is problem centered. There are 4 steps I walk a student through. 1. Identify: The student and I decide what concepts the problem revolves around. We define any jargon and spell out our goal clearly. 2. Write it down: I get the student to rephrase the question in the language relevant to the course (equations, mathematical notation, pseudo-code, etc.). 3. Do: This part is the actual work. Simplifying equations, solving x, writing code, etc. Usually after walking through steps 1 and 2, this step is the easiest. 4. Question the Answer: Once the work is done, I ask the student to explain their answer. Why does it make sense? What is the answer saying about the problem? How do we know it is the correct answer? Depending on the student and subject, more or less emphasis is given to each of the 4 steps. Regardless of the student, I have found this method to be successful at not only explaining a question, but leaving the student with a deeper understanding of the subject.
