I tutor MATLAB which is a coding language. Students usually come to me with assignments that they have tried solving but either totally got stuck or had some errors.
Usually I ask them before the lesson to send me the assignment file so that I can solve it before the class since with coding I don’t always have the theoretical knowledge about the assignment (could be physics or engineering) and I need offline time to learn the theory before solving the assignment in code.
What I do in class is that I go over the assignment with the student and solve the code (with them but really I do most of the talking). I make sure that they understand everything but sometimes I just feel like I might be doing it for them.
Any tips on other methods of how I can help students with coding?
