Tutoring sessions with 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 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. I’ll jump in only if you have a question or make a mistake.
Why Show My Math Work When Tutoring?
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 Math 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, any time. Right before a test, this is extremely helpful. You can see your own notes, in your own handwriting. If there is something important for you to learn, you can highlight it in bright pink. That way, you will find it faster.
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!
*Please note that this type of math teacher is rare. For this particular student’s next class he had to print out his notes. Still beat having to transcribe them, though.
Another advantage to using an online whiteboard is that you can post images onto your board between sessions. This way, we can both view any specific questions you have during your next session.
Ease And Flexibility Of Scheduling
Many of us have busy and often variable schedules. If this is the case for you or your student, you will enjoy the ease and flexibility of scheduling with mcstutoring. Whether you are seeking help for test preparation or math tutoring, scheduling with the Acuity scheduler is fantastic.
First, you can schedule sessions as often as you wish. That allows for flexibility in scheduling. If you need a session one week and then not for another month, that’s fine. The scheduler allows for that.
Second, you can schedule sessions for 30 or 60-minute increments. Sometimes students have only a few questions they want to cover. The availability of 30-minute sessions allows for them to set these short sessions when they need. Also, if your student needs a 90-minute session, you can schedule a 90-minute session. Students appreciate the flexibility of scheduling.
Fourth, you will receive reminders about your sessions. You will receive an email confirmation when you set a session. Then, on the day of the session, you’ll receive a text reminder. This helps you keep on track with your scheduled sessions.
Third, payment is a breeze. You can pay via PayPal using the scheduler. If you already have a PayPal account, you are fine. If not, PayPal accepts credit cards and even checks. Should you have a balance in your account at the end of the school year, you will be refunded the remaining balance.
