Hey all. Ive just recently been asked to tutor a 12 year old (maybe 11?) in maths. I haven't yet started with her, but i have a session booked in for next week. I spoke to her dad, and she is apparently quite bad at really basic maths such as basic arithmetic. I dont know the details of what she is struggling with yet, but i'll soon find out. Anyway, i usually tutor upper high school kids in the more advanced math classes, mainly calculus, so the students i help out are usually pretty fluent with the basics (well, in most cases). The youngest person i have tutored in the past was about 15 years old. For me, tutoring this 12 year old is going to be something completely new to me. Teaching somebody the basics of fractions, adding, subtracting and multiplying is somewhat different to explaining concepts of differentiation and optimization. Im not really sure how to go about it. Anyone had much experience with teaching maths in a similar situation; any tips and strategies that may have worked well, or failed, perhaps? Even if anyone knows of any good resources which may aid me in teaching primary school maths, id be greatly appreciative Thanks in advance, Dan.
