My teacher methodology is two fold.
First is to teach you slow, through clear explanations, the different types of problems you'll encounter. How to differentiate what type of problem you're being presented, what strategy use to solve it and what the take away from that type of problem should be.
Second, the distinctions between the different types of problems are clear, my next focus is to increase the speed at which a student is able to work. Many tutors allow students to work slowly -- which is detriment to performance. If you only finish the test 'just barely in time', you have no chance to look over your work for simple mistakes. If you don't finish all the questions on the test, you get a 0 for every question you do not complete. The faster one works, the easier it is to remain focus as it's hard to be both distracted and working fast.
Once you know the problems inside and out, can do speed drills for problems and consistently get the questions correct, you're ready to take on and ace that test.
I'm a university student currently studying Manufacturing Engineering at UBC-O. In the past, I have worked for Microsoft on their Tier 3 Escalation program for pro support and spent years tutoring students in Chemistry, Physics and Calculus. I've taken students who only received 60% on their first midterms in Calculus 1 to achieving overall grades of A (85%) over the course of a semester and A+ in the Calculus 2.
For discounted bulk rate prices (5 hour and 10 hour pricing), each session has to be at least 4 hours of tutoring in one session. Minimum session time is 2 hours in length if outside Vernon and located elsewhere in the Okanagan (Kelowna) to make traveling to Kelowna worth the effort/time.
