John: Suffolk Organic Chemistry tutor
Certified Organic Chemistry Tutor in Suffolk, VA
...throughout my undergraduate years, earning great praise as a chemistry tutor. My main approach as a tutor is to slowly ween my students off of my help. I usually begin the session with an example of myself performing a problem, and then I walk my students through the problem. Towards the end of the session, I challenge my students to act as if I'm the student and have them lead me through a problem.... My philosophy is one in which the student understands the material to the point that he/she can teach the material. I often start a tutoring session by completing a homework problem with them, and I narrate my thought process as I go through the problem. Towards the end of the session, once the student gains confidence, I challenge him/her to act as if I'm the student, and narrate their thought process as they tackle a problem. This is the truest way to assess if they understand the material.
