Kissie I have been teaching in the education field for seventeen years and I really enjoy it. I also have four children of my own whom I get a chance to really enjoy now that I work from home.... My teaching philosophy is to always help the student, even if it involves giving extra time. Many students learn by modeling and doing. Learning does not always have to be verbal.... In a typical first session with a student, I would ask questions first to get to know them a little. Find out what do they mostly like to do and ask about interests and hobbies.
