Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Getting really good at anything is a matter of practice, motivation, and guidance. You practice, I guide, and we can meet in the middle on motivation.

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

Learn about the student. Give the student an activity (e.g., a reading excerpt) that is part learning exercise, part evaluation, and work through it together. Assign homework based on the progress of the lesson.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

When a student feels that work is connected to success, then the work feels easy. My goal is to help the student see that connection.
