… in   our   opinion   is   to   help  students  help  themselves.  To  teach  and  guide  them  to  the  point  where  they  become  independent   learners,  and  require  less  professional   tutoring  to  none  at  all.

Knowledge   can  be  learned,  but  applying  it,  requires  thorough  thinking.  The  most  important  job  we  have  at  Socrates  Tutoring  is  the  student’s  personal  development.  As  Greek  philosopher  Socrates  would  have  put  it: “ I  cannot  teach anybody anything,  I  can  only  make   them  think.”   Our  students  learn  academic  and  time  management  behaviours  and  habits  that  will  continue  to  help  them  be  successful  students  throughout  their  studies.

A  good  tutor  is  someone who  is  available,  can maintain  a steady  communication  of quality with the student,   and is the  point  of academic  support. Not  just before  tests and final exams but over the time.
Tutoring is a personal communication, a one-on-one connection, developed  as the tutor understands the student’s rhythm of learning, and gives the student enough confidence to both explore and research the subject on their own. Researching is an amazing skill that leads to a deeper knowledge, experience, and self growth. It  can be learned during the Socrates  teaching experience and then applied through life.

When learning math, students gain self-confidence through time. It grows along with their understanding of the course content and its applications.
Math IS NOT like any other subject! Learning math takes years.
