How do your lessons usually plan out?

I think the best approach is to adapt sessions to the needs of the tutee - whether that requires providing a confidence boost following some unexpected exam results, or thoroughgoing preparations for an Oxbridge interview! Regardless of the circumstances though, I think a successful tuition session will involve the tutee building enthusiasm for the subject, asking plenty of questions, and developing their own voice and opinions. As Robert Heinlein put it ‘when one teaches, two learn’.
