I am a rising senior studying psychology at the University of Chicago, honored in my junior year with induction into the national honors society, Phi Beta Kappa. I believe passionately that every student is unique, with specialized talents and weaknesses to which a teacher must respond in a way as unique as the student. I look forward to using psychological research on learning to help every student realize their own personal talents, and succeed even in areas of difficulty.

Q & A

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I have found that positive reinforcement--providing rewards for desirable behavior--is the best way to motivate a student. For some, a verbal encouragement or commendation is enough; for others, I would use stickers, an artificial points system, or some other more concrete reinforcer to help motivate the student.

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

To cope with difficulty on a specific concept, my first strategy is to present the concept in a different way. If I have been using an auditory explanation, I will switch to a visual representation or a tactile demonstration. If my own explanation is insufficient, I turn to the vast resources available online--videos, games, tutorials, etc.
