Q & A

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.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Refer them to an appropriate resource that can help.
