What is your teaching philosophy?

Mathematics and physics are the language of our universe. Anyone is able to comprehend these subjects; they just need to learn the translations.

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

I would learn about the student - who they are, and who they aspire to be. I would find out their strengths and weaknesses and modify my teaching style in accordance with these.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Mathematical techniques can be viewed as tools; as you practice them you'll start to fill your toolbox and eventually be able to build anything. I would stress to the student how important it is to focus on the big picture when solving a problem. Practice enough problems, and they will start to see patterns. I do not teach them to memorize a bunch of different equations, but instead, I explain how to recognize a type of problem and then employ their tools accordingly. This enables a student to fearlessly approach any problem with confidence.
