Hi, My name is Connor Hopkins and I am a senior at the Colorado School of Mines. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Chemical Engineering. I have been a TA at Mines for 3 years now and I have to say that it is one of my most favorite experiences at college. I truly enjoy teaching and helping students reach their learning goals whether that is making an A on this next class or improving a GPA through multiple classes. If you think that I would be a good fit for you please feel free to contact me.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to have the student first show me their original thought process before I offer suggestions so that I can more effectively help them through the problem.

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

In a typical first session, I would try to get to know the student so that I can work with their interests to facilitate the learning process.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

The most effective way that I found to make a student an independent learner is to improve interest of the subject so that the subject becomes enjoyable and not just a chore.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Showing the student that they are always capable of improving so that they motivate themselves to continue working.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Make a correlation to another skill or concept that they have a much better understanding of, then return to the original problem.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Getting to know your students is key. If you can understand their interests then you can provide a more productive learning environment.
