I assume responsibility that my student is learning and that my student is learning at higher and higher levels, in accordance with Bloom's Taxonomy. Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Evaluation, Synthesis, Analysis are higher levels of learning that give the student tools to apply lessons into maturity.

What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy puts the responsibility that learning is taking place on myself, the teacher. It is important to question the student to verify understanding and to challenge the student as he/she matures, in line with Bloom's Taxonomy. Bloom's Taxonomy outlines the higher levels of learning that students are capable of as they mature in their lessons.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
A first session is very important in that it is the opportunity to start off the relationship as a partnership, an agreement to work together, and to help the student succeed. I use some of this time to get to know the student, to discuss expectations, and to plan.
