Recent research shows that introducing new concepts to students in the process of attempting to answer a question results in a substantially higher retention rate than lectures and results in a fully, continually immersive experience.
In the process of answering questions, we take our students though the explanations step by step to make understanding and learning is simple as possible.
But more than just asking and answering questions, by tying each explanation step to an underlying principle or strategy, we help our students gain the ability to answer a broad set of questions correctly. We believe that content is the medium, principles and strategies are the message.
Teaching the cues that alert the student to which principle or strategy to apply at each step is fundamental to our tutoring strategy.
