Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I aspire to be a role model for my students and encourage them to believe that they too can succeed if they put their mind to it.

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

Reading comprehension starts with engaging in readings that interest YOU, and then applying these techniques to readings that may not be all that optional to read.

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

A teaspoon of self-disclosure, plus a tablespoon of music and/or sports references, plus a cup of humor is my recipe for keeping a student excited for any subject they're struggling in.

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

Practice makes perfect. Reviewing concepts covered over and over again until it is mastered is priority. We cannot move on otherwise, and that's OK!

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

As a Social Worker, empowering youth is my specialty. Once I notice a decrease in confidence, coming up with self-affirming statements is almost always on our agenda and may become part of homework. Be ready!

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

Introductions and icebreakers are the best way to start building a relationship with students. You need to be able to trust and feel comfortable with the idea that I can help you succeed.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I always motivate my students by providing constant reassurance and normalizing their struggles with a particular concept.
