Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that everyone can have a deeper understanding of mathematical principles. I also believe that there is more than one way to solve any given problem. I do not believe that rote memorization of facts or processes is true learning. To that end, I talk with each student and ask questions to find out how each person thinks and how they best learn. I am then able to show them different techniques using their strengths to guide the lesson. I continue to check for understanding throughout the lesson to ensure that the process is working, and if not, I change direction. In this way, my instruction is personalized for each student.

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

I have an informal "get to know each other" time for the first few minutes. I then ask the student what their goals are for tutoring, as well as their expectations. We will review any diagnostic results together, and I tell them what I think the best starting place is and how we will progress. If we agree, we move on. If not, we modify the plan and go from there.
