Approach to Tutoring:
-Identify weak-points in the student`s understanding through discussions of their learning material, and help them to work through each issue.
-Answer the queries that teachers do not have the time for.
-Understand the common pressures students face and show how they can overcome them.
-Can iterate what students should expect in future learning and how they can achieve their goals.
