Q & A

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.
