Learning is patience and patience is learning.

Some students view certain subjects, such as math, like a giant hiding on a hillside; however, with positive reinforcement, patience, and delicately handling the needs of the student, any uncertainty and/or trepidation will be replaced with confidence.

Ultimately, my mission is to enrich the needs of any student, which would be in any way most conducive to their learning style, and ensure that every student reaches the level of success they seek.

"Defeat is only momentary; but, victory lasts forever!"

Q & A

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

Learn about them and their needs.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By helping them identify their strengths and weaknesses. Once they identify these things, focus on efforts to enhance the strengths and eliminate the weaknesses.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Positive reinforcement and positive outcomes from their hard work.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Practice, practice, and practice.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

The most important is trust. If a student is able to trust you and believes you care, then the likeliness for success is very much greater.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

Try to make the subject matter relatable to the student or their interests.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

Practice problems or scenarios.

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learning is patience and patience is learning.

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

First, identify what areas the student is struggling in. Once a framework is built and an understanding of the student's needs are pinpointed, patiently approach the tutoring based solely on their needs. Build confidence with each worksheet, book, or practice problem.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

Simply put, encouragement rather than discouragement. Positively reinforcing that their efforts and perseverance will pay off, and that success will follow with each piece of subject matter learned.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

Asking questions, building trust, and learning exactly what their goals are for the subject.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

By observing how they most effectively absorb or learn the material. For example, are they visual or verbal learners? Do they need to see example problems or questions worked out and briefly explained, or do they need a thorough explanation or lecture with a quick walk-through?

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

The materials depend on the student's needs and subject matter. Simply put, whatever material is needed for the student to be in the best position for success.
