Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

You are only teaching well if you are also learning new techniques and new ways to approach a problem.

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

I would try to find a new way to relay the information, specifically targeting the student’s best way of learning.

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

I provide multiple examples and stories, and use those to target where the student is having difficulty in their comprehension.

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

I would immediate delve into the student's material and attempt to give the student a fresh look at the material.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can send him new questions. I can ask them to think of new ways to imagine the material. I can provide them with practice tests and self-assessments so that they are well prepared for exams.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would bring real life examples and new questions that are interesting and fun.

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

Learn where they are having the most problems and how the student learns best.
