Preparation For 1-on-1 Online Tutoring Session
An online tutoring session provides a great way for you to get the most bang for your buck. It’s one of the various tutoring options out there which, given its inherent flexibility, is attractive to many. To best utilize this service you want to go into it having learned as much as you can on your own, and then ask the tutor questions to help fill in those gaps in your knowledge. Questions like these tend to be the deeper, more insightful kind. These are the type of questions that “fresh” learners typically have; which cut right to the heart of the problem, and assume nothing in terms of prior knowledge.
As is often the case, answers to these questions are often not provided by textbook authors and instructors. The reason for this is because people who have known the subject matter for years have a tendency to forget what it is like to learn the material in the first place. They have lost touch with those first learning steps, and therefore teach the material without regard to some of those “learning bridges”, which connect not understanding something to understanding something.
As someone who is learning the material the first time, you have access to those gaps in explanation, and you want to make a note of them and then ask for clarification by the right person, such as a tutor. Getting those issues resolved will go a long way towards helping you get proficiency in the subject matter. And if you do it during a tutoring session you will do so in an efficient manner. It might be that there is some key lack of understanding that, when clarified, will make the rest of the subject material a lot easier to understand. But it is important to flesh out the details of what it is you don’t understand. And then once you do that, seek help, and the process will be more useful to you.
