I assume responsibility that my student is learning and that my student is learning at higher and higher levels, in accordance with Bloom's Taxonomy. Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Evaluation, Synthesis, Analysis are higher levels of learning that give the student tools to apply lessons into maturity.

What is your teaching philosophy?

The Socratic method, asking open-ended questions, is an excellent strategy to get a student to talk. When the tutor can speak less and encourage the tutee to speak more, the tutor can identify the student's level of understanding.

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

A first session is very important in that it is the opportunity to start off the relationship as a partnership, an agreement to work together, and to help the student succeed. I use some of this time to get to know the student, to discuss expectations, and to plan.
