I have been a special education teacher for 3 years now. I am extremely patient, I believe every student can learn and I find teaching incredibly fulfilling. I have experience with 6th, 7th, and 11th grade math.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Every child is capable of learning and wants to improve and grow. They just need the right support in order to make this happen.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Typically, in a first session, I would want to find out a little bit more about the student's hobbies and interests, and I'd ask them questions about how they feel they learn best. I would also want to discuss their own goals for tutoring and get a sense of where they are currently at with the subject.
