Depending on the student’s familiarity with Yup and what the student needs help with, a typical session can last anywhere from 20 minutes to a full hour. We ask that you block out at least an hour of your time for each session to try and get the most out Yup without feeling rushed. Our tutors are committed to helping students get through the problem, learn the concepts behind the problem, and apply the learned knowledge to similar problems in the future. To help make the session more efficient, be sure to complete the pre-session questions as accurately as possible so that your tutor can better diagnose how to help.
A session will go through 5 phases in accordance with our learning standards: Understand, Plan, Solve, Check, and Reflect. The tutor will first ensure that the student understands both the problem and the underlying concepts. The tutor will then prompt the student to develop a plan to solve the problem. The student will attempt to solve the problem independently. Once solved, the student will check that the answer is correct. Lastly, the student will reflect on the most important thing learned in the session and how it will apply to other learnings.
