Q & A

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

Introduce myself and explain my background in the subject to the student. I also ask students about themselves and their interests.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I try to get the student to enjoy the subject so that they will want to continue studying and learning more on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I like to give students problems to work on throughout the week without me in order to stay motivated.

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

I would try to figure out exactly what aspect of the skill/concept was troubling them and help them overcome that. Often, one small detail can cause a student to have difficulty with an entire concept.
