Tutoring Approach: As a tutor, I consider it essential to engage the learner by way of providing for a versatile experience. It is crucial to stimulate the learning process by providing several forms of feedback. This takes the form of oral and speaking as well as listening skills feedback during classes, whilst focusing more on written skills for homework. This approach gives a fairly structured approach to tutoring, and thus customers get the most of their time & money as well.
