### Phillip

I develop relationships with the students I tutor. I believe the most crucial component to successfully achieve goals is trust. More importantly, I believe everyone is able to learn all content and it is my personal mission to educate others.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I firmly believe all material is conquerable. If instruction is fun, informative, rigorous, and applicable to the student's life, he or she will excel.

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

Session one is very important. This is where expectations are established. Goals are marked. And most importantly, communication and trust is developed.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Help the student obtain adequate resources. Inspire and motivate the student. Condition the student into utilizing intrinsic motivation.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I strongly believe it is important to link material to the student's everyday life. Exposure to real-life applications will significantly increase curiosity and retention.

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

One technique I found useful is having the student explain the concept to me. This forces the student to think critically about the problem and develop critical intuition.
