## Instructional Format

Tutoring sessions are one-on-one and the lesson plan can adapt based on individual needs. The amount of content covered depends on the student’s learning pace, but I will attempt to cover your selected topics as comprehensively as necessary for the student to master them. Feel free to bring homework, textbooks, or past tests to review.
