What happens during a Subject Tutoring?
Subject Tutoring is a highly personalized service for which the student and tutor create an individualized plan for each session. It is important to bring all materials relevant to the session and know what you are and are not struggling with.
Once at the session, the student and tutor will create a plan of action for what can realistically be achieved during the session. Sessions are ideally highly collaborative with frequent discussion and have you, the students, doing a lot of the work.
At the conclusion of each session, the student and tutor will review what was accomplished, discuss what the next steps are, and schedule a tutoring appointment should one be needed.
