I am capable of teaching in a range of styles, however I prefer (and recommend) teaching a more in depth understanding of the material taught on the course. I have always had an interest for the more abstract areas of mathematics and physics, and find the focus in schools all too often fails to capture the significance and intuitiveness of the materials taught. Though it saves time in school not to explore the materials this way, this understanding is key in students who gain the highest grades - think how more effortless it is looking down at the landscape from above, than finding your way through the ideas at ground level. It's a little extra work, but having a perspective of course topics in a more advanced context lessens reliance on memorisation. In reality, practice and hard work from the tutee is always necessary - working through problems is indispensable with or without supervision. To this end, most of my tutor sessions structure around worked examples, but rapidly segue into deeper concepts as they arise; having the tutees explain their understanding of specific problems is an efficient way to pinpoint areas that need deep, encouraged thought on the part of the student.
