I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. Based on this, I try to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.

I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I try to emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.

Jacob was a conscientious, hard-working student with the ability to explain very difficult ideas clearly. I have no doubt that he would be an excellent tutor.
