Your sessions with a tutor at mcstutoring are simple. At first, we will work together on your homework. You will write the problem and I will guide you through it. You will find this private tutoring style more helpful than other approaches.†
At first, I might do the majority of the writing. This is normal, especially if you are struggling. Once you regain your math or science mojo, this changes. You will do the majority of the writing. Then, you will set up the math questions and show your work. Iíll jump in only if you have a question or make a mistake.
Why Do I Show My Work With My Tutor?
Why do I want to see your work? Sometimes I recommend an easier or faster approach.† I’ll also recommend easy corrections. You’ll realize I’m on your side and want you to perform well in class. It’s important to you to know someone cares. Math and science are fraught with teachers who care for math and science more than their students.
Regarding tutoring, you have a voice in the process. Most students appreciate the collaborative nature of this work. Think of it more as the two of us working together rather than a one-way data dump. The more you realize you can do math and science, the better!
Digital Record Of Your Work
You will have a digital copy of your work you can access from any device. This could be a laptop, iPad or even a phone.
Despite any fears you may have, you will likely appreciate the easy access to your work. This allows you to access your notes anywhere. Right before a test, this is extremely helpful. You can see your own notes, in your own handwriting.
One student even showed his work from his phone to his teacher. She accepted it for credit. This saved him the need to transcribe it. He was ecstatic!
Another advantage to using an online whiteboard is that you can post images onto your board. You can even do this before or between sessions. This way, we can both view any specific questions you have during your next session.
Scheduling Sessions With Your Private Tutor
With the online scheduler, you can set sessions with your tutor to be as long as you need. And as often as you need.
Having been busy in high school myself, I realize that your schedule can change weekly. The scheduler allows you to set sessions when you need them, as you need them. You can even set a session the same day. You just need to do so at least 4 hours in advance.
In case you have a math or science tutoring emergency, you can text me. While you might not be able to meet with me for a full hour that same day, you can likely set up a session for 30 minutes.
You might be rather busy with all of your school and extracurricular commitments. In this case, you might want to sample online tutoring. Most students who’ve tried this option use it almost exclusively. The rest will use online tutoring only when they are time-crunched. Either way, you might want to try it.
