I don't really know where else to put this but I was wondering how do you guys tutor in real life? I want to start doing that and get paid but I don't know what to do. Is it basically the same teacher?

Do you just show up answer questions a kid might have? Give them problems or what?

This isn't really a place for that question. However, I don't know where it would be so I'll answer it best I can. It is not the same as a "teacher" in the classroom context, although it is the same general idea. Typically in tutoring you are focused on very specific subject. So, say, instead of tutoring John for "Math" you're tutoring him and teaching him "fractions". The tutoring irl we do on *here* is simply helping a student understand their work so they better understand. We never just give the answer. Sometimes when they request it, we give them practice problems. Hopefully that helped.

I've done a bit of tutoring before. I haven't done anything official, but if some friends ask me to help them, I oblige. They also say I should actually tutor officially. As for what I do, the student always needs to have some example problems. For example, if we're working on logarithms, the student needs to bring some problems related too logarithms that they want to work on. I usually do the the first two problems or so mostly by myself, making sure that they understand what I'm doing during each step. After that, I let them start taking the lead with the problems. So far, I believe everyone I've helped more than once or twice has received an A in their class. I should also mention that the people that I've helped/tutored were already decent at the subject area. There was just one or two areas that were eluding them, and with my help were able to get a firm grasp on that subject material.
