Principles of teaching

Teaching from the ground up. To make learning easier, it’s important to master fundamentals first. That’s why before the first lesson with a new student, our tutor:

– reviews the material that the student is currently studying at school or university;

– prepares a list of the topics the student needs to know in order to master the current material.

During lessons, our tutor:

– checks if the student has any gaps in these topics;

– if yes, explains the needed concepts and gives the student tasks to let him or her digest these concepts. 

Usually, only after that the tutor proceeds to the material the student is currently having at school or university. Exceptions are made for cases when a student needs urgent help – for example, to prepare for a test in a week.

Simple explanations. We explain in simple words to ensure the student fully understands the new material. 

Examples from real life. Students understand and memorize new information easier, when it’s possible to connect it with everyday experiences. That is why we usually explain new concepts with vivid real world examples.

Constant practice. After any theoretical explanation we either ask a student to solve a problem to reinforce the learning, or solve that problem together. This approach helps both the student to better understand new material, and the tutor to check how the student has digested it.
