What is your teaching philosophy?
Learning should be fun and interesting. The more engaged a student is, the more knowledge they will soak up!

Praise their drive and interest in bettering themselves.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Move on to another area and come back to the challenge after a bit.
