Steven

I am a very positive person who loves helping others. I was a math tutor for two years in high school and was able to help many students on various levels of math throughout those two years. I remember how daunting some of these subjects seemed to me at the time I first learned them, so I would love to help students today learn these fundamental subjects that will guide them in future education.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I think students learn best by first teaching them the method of how to solve a particular problem, then going through an example with them, and finally letting the student tackle one on their own to build their confidence.

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

Get to know the student and what he/she struggles with the most in certain subjects. Also, to ease into the session and not overwhelm the student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Allow the student to problem-solve without giving them all the answers all the time.
