Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is that with the proper instruction, every student is capable of succeeding.

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

I begin the first session with a discussion of where the student is at, what their goals are, and how we can work together to meet their goals.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Show them how to work problems, and gradually have them complete steps until they are comfortable working problems on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I motivate my students using a variety of techniques, including positive feedback, a positive attitude, and gentle constructive criticism.
