I have over ten years experience in the classroom and tutoring students. As a director and tutor, I have worked in a variety of tutoring and learning centers. Having the opportunity to work with students one on one shows me where there is room for improvement across the board.
Depends on the student :) But really, I do a lot of clarifying the big picture and also practicing of the details. This allows for success of all types of learners, as it uses both the left and right brain hemispheres. It means that the student will get the skill needed for a successful test right then and also be able to apply that skill again within other topics for years to come.
Yet to be added
Because math is cumulative, I make my worksheets and games with the goal of providing additional support for those topics that have room for improvement within our current standards. The intent is that most of the material is not only unique but also necessary for laying a strong foundation for the students to be able to succeed now and next year. Plus, wouldn't it help you out if at the beginning of the year every math student came with no gaps from the previous years and, thus, ready to soar?
