Hi everyone! I'm a current undergraduate student who has a lot of experience as an instructor and a student. I specialize in math, yet it wasn't always that way. I became good at math through many hours of study. I understand the struggle of not understanding a subject and I can help you overcome your hurdles too!

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Learn, practice, and teach.

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

I would start by asking what the student may expect from me and what I expect from them. I would make it clear that I am not just there to check their math homework, but to help them learn and gain confidence in whatever they are struggling with.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Students become independent learners when they build enough confidence to determine whether something is done correctly or not. Always asking, "Why are you right?" or "How did you get to that answer?" is important because you want to make sure a student isn't just following a list a steps, but has a deep understanding of the subject.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Keeping students motivated is all about never being static. If a student is unmotivated, it is likely because they're stuck and having difficulty progressing.

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

If a student is having trouble learning a concept, it is most likely something lacking in the way they study. Identifying what they are not doing and making a plan that involves making that a habit is the easiest way to overcome specific difficulties.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Some of these strategies don't even seem like strategies. A lot of success in learning (in my personal experience) comes from immediate evaluation after doing a problem and identifying where weaknesses lie.

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

Play games that are related to the subject they are struggling in; make it fun!
