Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy is to help students work through practice problems and to learn theory by doing examples.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a first session, I would learn about the student's background in the subject, understand the student's goals, and discuss which type of learning style is best for the student.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help a student become more independent by building confidence in understanding the theory behind problems, and allowing the student to increasingly answer problems on their own with assistance.
