What is your teaching philosophy?

Everyone has a different learning style, and teachers need to engage the student with the best style suited to them.

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

Talk thoroughly to establish strengths and weaknesses, as well as how they learn best.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Try different approaches and use different examples to demonstrate the concept.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Focus on gist reading first, and then reading for detail. Provide gist and detailed questions for students to answers. Such strategies ensure students understand what they are reading, and are not just reading words.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Have a target set in mind, and establish a timeline of what needs to be accomplished within a certain time frame.
