Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

As a tutor, I love to see a student really understand a topic for the first time after struggling with it. I hope as a teacher that I can help every student come to the realization that they actually understand a certain topic. This is why I want to teach, and it is also why I have chosen to tutor. The main reason for tutoring and teaching is to introduce a topic to a student that they have never seen before and try to find a way to explain it to them that they really understand.

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

I would like to first get to know the student and see what their likes and dislikes are. This will give me a chance to try and incorporate things they might like into the different concepts I would be helping them with. I would also see what all they already know and understand from the topic we will be starting with.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would just encourage them to keep trying and practicing the concept or topic they are working on. Once they have accomplished understanding a certain topic, students are more likely to be excited to learn the next one. Also, giving them positive feedback is always something that will encourage them to keep going. Feedback and guidance are two of the most important things to help all students stay motivated and focused.
