What is your teaching philosophy?
I like to break things down into mentally manageable chunks that can be done inside your head to make problems easier and more fun.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Talk about where he or she feels most challenged and assess the best approach.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I like to teach students how to approach a problem in a very practical, logical way that they can internalize and use in the future.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I have a great sense of humor and I like to make every effort to make learning fun!
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Think of a different approach or take a break, if necessary.
