Learning should be fun! When you are interested and excited about what you are doing then chances are that you will want to do it for hours non stop (like playing a video game or watching your favorite youtube channel). Learning should be like that.
Additionally, students should at some point in the learning processes become responsible and take charge for their own learning. For some students this will be automatic while others will need some motivation and guidance. That is where I come in. 🙂
It is challenging for most people to concentrate for several minutes non – stop. As such I incorporate a 5 – 10 minute break after certain tasks or goals are completed during tutoring.
My goal is that each student not only experiences improved understanding but also an overall increase in their confidence in math (and life).
