Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that being a teacher is a great responsibility and a unique privilege. The teacher, if good, can change the lives of his or her pupils for the better, helping them grow into responsible, mature adults who can serve others and change the world. As a teacher, I try to not only to teach my students concepts and impart knowledge, but more importantly, I try to live an exemplary life, leading by example. I realize that my students are not only analyzing what I present but also observing every one of my actions. Therefore, I set high expectations for myself, knowing that I have a great influence on my students.

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

In a first session, I would introduce myself and get to know my students as well as I can, taking into consideration the medium and the age level. I would seek to know, specifically, what their hopes, dreams, and aspirations are, as well as their academic struggles. Finally, I would ask the student what they expect from tutoring, and I'd create a plan of action to help them achieve their goals.
