# Todd

Certified Tutor

With a full military career behind me, I look forward to serving students throughout the United States in the subjects listed on my profile. I have helped out classmates with various subjects over the years, and started working as a paid tutor after graduating from college. I enjoy tutoring students and will continue the activity until recalled to active duty later this year.

## What is your teaching philosophy?

The student knows how to best learn, and the teacher is there simply to assist as needed.

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

I would ask them what they would like to learn and how they would like to learn it.

## How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I would prompt them to examine each item on their own, serving as an aid to learning only when they are unable to figure out the answer on their own.

## How would you help a student stay motivated?

My own passion for a subject makes it possible for a student to remain motivated for as long as the body will allow them to remain focused.
