Best mathematics tutoring tips
Looking for the best ways to tutor mathematics? If you are into private math tutoring, then you may be facing certain difficulties to determine what’s the best way to teach it to your students. Each math problem consists of so many different solutions and you may also have to find the perfect and the shortest solution for it. Here you will find the best ways to tutor mathematics to your students.
1. Choose a specific problem
You should choose a certain problem and it should be the one where students are facing a lot of difficulty and if you solve that problem then the students will get a fair idea how to solve the same type of problem in future.
2. Ask the student to attempt the problem
By this you will get a better understanding of how the students approach the problem and what they think at every different process. After this you will be able to teach them better.
3. Correct Errors
Most of the time the students cannot find the perfect solution because they did a small error on the way to find the solution. Most of the time the errors are in algorithm, algebra and arithmetic. So you should correct the error and tell them what they should have done.
4. Remind the student that they are intelligent
A tutor should remember that making mistake is the part of learning. And even the best of the best mathematician makes mistakes. So if your student makes mistakes then it doesn’t mean that they suck at math or they are stupid, it’s just that they are leaning. So you should keep their confidence up.
5. Guide Student through the problem
When a student asks you to tell him what to do next, do not tell the solution right away. Instead show them what’s the next step and then ask them to solve it from that step. This way they will come up for the solution on their own and would not need teachers help all the way.
6. Let the student try again
Now that you have corrected all the errors of the student and showed them the next time, ask them to do it all over again so that they are clear in each and every step.
Guide the students till the time they do not come up with the solution and then ask them to repeat the process all over again.
