What is your teaching philosophy?
There are several parts of my teaching/tutoring philosophy. Once initial simple verbal and oral diagnostics are done, this helps with baseline for work. Then we immediately proceed from there to get "on-top" of current work, and then go back to previous items as needed. Whether a student is regular, honors, IB, or AP, they still to need to be "taught" the essentials...then from there, I have seen them start to take-off on their own for those particular items...and we can continue as needed.
