Gentle and caring but persistent! Students need to know that you understand that they are afraid. They also need to know that you believe that they can succeed. Finding opportunities for the student to succeed early in tutor sessions can help to build confidence. At the same time, I make an early attempt to assess where student is by checking performance on basic mathematical concepts. If remediation is needed, work on deficient skills must be incorporated into the tutor hour. Guided repetition and practice is important. Emphasis is placed on understanding the linear (step by step) nature of mathematics. Training students to show and understand each step in the problem solving process is important. Patience and positive feedback and encouragement are critical throughout the process. The development of the student's confidence in his/her problem solving abilities can help overcome fear of testing. I've been told that I have a gift for making the complicated seem simple.
