Educational Methodology

Method
Use
Pros/Cons

ALGORITHMIC

Teach the student the material directly.

Used when we first work with a student or directly before an exam.

Fast and effective. Reduces stress as material is presented in a straightforward easy to understand manner.

Does not lead to independent thinking or problem solving ability.

SOCRATIC

Ask the student questions designed to help engage the mind.

Used after we have addressed immediate and pressing needs.

Builds student's conceptual understanding of material. Student begins to develop independent critical thinking skills.

META-SOCRATIC

Lead the student to forming their own questions designed to probe the material.

Used once the student has developed a strong foundation and is maintaining a high level of performance.

Knowing what questions to ask is the basis for independent investigation. All Wells Academics tutoring works towards this goal.
