Study Skills and Organization
What is your teaching philosophy?
I strongly believe in the importance of educating the next generation. Education is the best way to achieve wealth and happiness.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get an understanding of the student's needs in addition to his/her current level.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help students by showing them how to be resourceful, digging deeper into the subject matter. By looking at different websites and/or books, students can become independent learners and get a deeper understanding of material.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
It's great to say "well done" after a student has shown understanding of a tricky concept by answering a problem correctly.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I'd demonstrate how to do it, show some different approaches, and show how the concept is applicable to real life.
