Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe all students can achieve, with the dedication of good teachers. I want to help my students be as successful as possible and inspire a love of learning. As a math teacher, I want to help my students become competent problem solvers and critical thinkers.

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

During the first session, I think it's important to get to know the student I will be working with as much as possible. Every student is different, and therefore learns differently. If I want to be an effective tutor, it's necessary I learn about their background, interests, strengths, and needs as a student.
