I start off the class by setting an agenda with the student. Then I go through the material by explaining the concept usually with extra aids in the form of lecture notes or text book. In this part of lecture, I illustrate the concept by solving a couple of problems while explaining each step to the student. Then I let the student try the problems. I believe that the tutor should be patient with student's mistakes and guide them through solving the problem instead of solving the problem for the student. There is no learning without mistakes.
