I am energetic tutor who love solving problems in Math, Physics, and Chemistry especially doing calculation. I am very patient in following steps by steps in lecturing, and I want to ensure my student would understand the basic knowledge and question first. After that, I would go further to expand their knowledge.
I also need the collaboration between my client and the student along with their expectation.
My parents are both high school teachers in Physics and Chemistry, so I simulated her their teaching way to tutor my friends in high school and college. My parents want to reinforce my knowledge, understand the questions, and work together with me some problems. Then they let me do some similar problems by myself.
Undergraduate Degree: SUNY College at Plattsburgh - Bachelors, Chemistry
I love reading books and learn about new knowledge
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
I would go slowly on each sentence to ensure they understand, and I would ask how much they grasp from their reading so that I can help where they struggle.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
I would ask the student where they struggle, and I would have them explain their perspective toward the subject. I would modify or correct to help them understand better.
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
I would give them a funny example from the subject, and I would step by step cover each single part of their subject.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
I would give them my own example to test their understanding.
How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?
I would give them a small quiz at the end of the session.
How do you evaluate a student's needs?
I would observe their performance through the mock assignment, and I would attack their gaps in knowledge.
How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?
I would supply what they need, and I would provide the trick for their need.
