Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I am committed to helping students achieve their full potential to reach their academic goals. With persistence, thoughtfulness, and a little bit of fun, it's amazing what you can accomplish!

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

In the first session, it is important to establish two things: 1) a baseline of the student's academic performance and critical areas of need, and 2) a rapport with the tutor. The first session will involve getting to know the student, and some inquiry into where the student is at and what their needs are.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Every student needs to be equipped with a toolkit of study habits and plans that will motivate them for success. For many, this means making a detailed schedule of their time, and for others, it is merely establishing set goals that they can achieve for their academics. It's different depending on the learner!
