Cristiana P. ...I always track a student's progress based on what he or she hopes to accomplish. One way I do this is by going over old tests, making sure a student is proficient in the problems that are correct and helping in the areas where confusion still exists. My favorite part of teaching is when I am able to aid a student in grasping a challenging concept.

Kate C. ...I use diagnostic probes to explore students' mathematical thinking and help to shore up their knowledge gaps. Mathematics particularly is a subject where knowledge gaps in elementary arithmetic and algebra can cause cascading problems. A student who can easily factor a quadratic equation with multiple techniques may misunderstand "simpler" ideas, such as the meaning of negative exponents.
