Adult Independent Study Tutoring
I have taught many adults who are studying outside
the framework of a school program. Independent study as an adult
can be a very rewarding experience. I ask the student to work for
a minimum of four hours on material that I suggest and provide,
for every one hour spent with me.
My adult students understand that I am the guide
but they are the ones on the journey.
Many people ask me how many meetings with me they
will need to achieve a certain goal. Usually people ask me that
question before I have met them and had a chance to assess where
they are starting from and where they want to go.
Nevertheless, a very serviceable answer, which
I supply here, is this: Five one-hour meetings with me, together with
four additional hours working alone for each hour with me, amounts
to 25 hours of serious guided study. Twenty-five hours
will go a long way and will provide an excellent start on the
path towards your educational goals.
