Each topic is tackled through patience and exercises developed by myself. Towards the end a quiz or more fun activity would be completed to allow for good reflection of taught material. I have done this for degree level students. The lesson would be structured most likely as so:
-Main taught material
-Exercises to be completed together based upon student ability (either with me or individually)
-Fun Quiz and reflection
I have been giving lessons for 4 years tutoring to students from A-level skill below (around 30 students), and have allowed students to gain a richer understanding by acquiring a vast improvement in marks and performance through mathematical exercises and patience. I have also had experience with students from disadvantaged backgrounds and students who have suffered from potential mental health issues.
