What is your teaching philosophy?
I firmly believe that every child is capable of learning at any level, willing to learn when presented with the right tools, and excels at any task when given the necessary supports. Whether my students excels or fails is a direct result of my ability to provide them with the necessary support they require.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
At the first session, my main goal is to establish a rapport. Building a relationship with a student is an integral part of laying the groundwork for phenomenal learning. A typical first session will be based on me getting to know the student and their needs-from the student's point of view.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I help students become independent learners by allowing them to take control of their education. Keeping students informed about their progress allows them to understand where they are and gives them a roadmap to where they want to be. It also allows for the opportunity to celebrate incremental success along the way.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
I provide students with strategies to use while they are reading to aid in their reading comprehension.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
As a professional, when a student is having difficulty learning a concept, it is my job to use my expertise to approach the concept in a different way. It is most helpful to spend time with the student going step by step to determine where the confusion is occurring.
