One piece of advice that I would offer to anyone who would want to participate in a program like this would be to be patient. I have met quite a few students who do not get much support from professors or family. One student, in particular, would not speak and if he did it would be in phrases. After a few weeks of focusing on his struggles academically and being patient with him as he processed math problems, he started to open up and ask more questions. Now, whenever he joins a session he always has something to say. Of course, he is still coming out of his shell, but the patience I used definitely helped him to realize that I am here to help him because I care. Patience with students is the key. Sometimes students just need to know that you are there to support them and not criticize them.
