Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Any subject can be made interesting, with a motivated and optimistic mindset.

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

In a first session I like to find out a student's strengths and weaknesses. From there, we can determine if our best option is to multiply a student's strengths, or incrementally improve their weaknesses. Also, I like to swap one good joke with every new student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can help a student become an independent learner by showing them how to study, rather than forcing them to study with me. Tutors aren't meant to be by your side forever, and certainly I won't be there to take a test with my students. My goal is to give study tips and tricks, rather than repeat and test.
