Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I feel that teachers need to be highly perceptive of the student's reactions while teaching. This means checking for understanding and never getting ahead of the student. An effective lesson is one that is geared toward each specific student in terms of their study goals, while also incorporating their hobbies and interests into the lesson. In such a sense, teaching methods need to be adjusted on-the-fly depending on the student. Another very important (and often overlooked) aspect of teaching is that it should be FUN for the student. I believe that people retain the most information when they are having fun. If someone can associate "fun" with learning, they will want to learn more and study harder!

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By making every lesson FUN! And also by giving them study methods that are related to their interests for non-lesson times.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

By associating that subject with something they are truly interested in.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Break the reading down into smaller more comprehensible chunks, while also switching out advanced vocabulary with simpler synonym counterparts.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

Checking for understanding consistently throughout the lesson. Reading the student's body language and unspoken cues, which indicate if they are following or not.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

By never starting out with difficult material, assuring and praising them when they are right, and never rushing ahead of the student. It is also important to discuss the student's goals for their education and help them reach those goals.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

By discussing their education goals with them in the beginning, and briefly each lesson to make sure the goals have not changed. The most important thing is for the tutor to fully understand what they are trying to accomplish, and what they need help with in particular.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

By becoming a means for them to accomplish their particular goals. Also by going slowly for beginners, and giving a bit more of a challenge for advanced students.
