Mary

I'm a music therapy intern and I love to learn. I try to learn about everything I can get my hands on. I think learning is a lost art. If you hunger to learn then I'm there as a tool to make the journey easier/smoother. I really believe that once you set your mind to something then nothing is impossible.

What is your teaching philosophy?

Make them forget they are working.

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

I would get to know what they like and dislike. Take a practice quiz (a few questions) and go over it together. Trying to figure out how they would best learn during that first session is a good way to start.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Make it interesting for them. If they don't like math but they like sports, use sports-related questions. If they have trouble memorizing because it's boring... write a song.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Take a breath and sing a song. Singing is proven to help neurons reconnect.
