I'm an Economics major at Vassar College who has tutored peers and children for four years, and have learned as much from teaching as those I've taught. In my experience it is easiest for a student to learn when their teacher engages with them directly and adapts their way of teaching to the learning style and interests of the student. This has always been how I have learned most effectively as a student, and is how I attempt to instill knowledge as a teacher.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I think teaching is not just about passing information from one person to another. I believe that in order to truly succeed as a teacher, your student must make the discoveries themselves. Instead of just telling the answer, it is better to nudge and encourage them in such a way that they learn how to find the answer themselves.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

In a first session with a student, I try to really connect with my student. It is important that I understand not only where the student is excelling and struggling, but that I know how the student thinks and what style of tutoring they are most receptive to. There is no one strategy that works for every student, so on the first session I work with the student using multiple strategies across as broad a section of the material as possible. After we have done this, I talk to my student about what we felt worked and what didn't so we can know how to move forward on future sessions.
