What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is to try and make any subject just a tiny bit more enjoyable for the student. Everyone has their own personal learning style and pace, and I try my best to adjust accordingly to anyone's needs.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I typically try to learn a little about the student. I ask about school and hobbies. I try to understand from where the difficulties of the subject are arising and go from there.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I do my best to not only help with their area of needs but to also learn skills on critical thinking to apply elsewhere.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I usually find some common interests between the student and myself. If we continue to work hard, I encourage breaks where we can have discussions on those common interests and likes. I may even reward a larger break if we continue to work diligently.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Practice Practice Practice. Within a reasonable timeframe. I would also try to give them new perspectives and on how to look at a said skill/concept.
