What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe every child can learn. Each student has a different learning style, and as a tutor, it is my responsibility to find the students' learning style and how to best teach the material. I also believe in helping students to increase self-esteem and confidence so they can tackle the difficult concepts and succeed.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know the student and find out what his/her goals are. We may do an assessment pretest as well.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Increase confidence, give positive reinforcement, and give the student study skills to use when faced with a challenging concept.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
Positive feedback. Make learning fun by using games.
