Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Being sure that students are enjoying the learning process and having fun will keep them engaged.

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

Get to know the student, and learn the things the student is motivated by and is responsive to.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Encourage them to learn how to figure things out by themselves. First with a little help, but eventually letting them realize what it takes to be self-motivated.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By finding ways to reward them, and by controlling the pace so that students are not overwhelmed.

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

Go over previous concepts and make sure they are fully understood then try different approaches to explain the new concept.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Identify where the difficulty is, and have the student re-read in their own words. Go over context to clarify.

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

Understanding whether the student learns by listening, or by doing. Finding out how the student thinks and what they respond to.

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

Present situations in real life in which the subject will benefit the student. If there are none, create reward incentives such as breaks to motivate the student. It's important also to break down large problems into smaller steps so the student does not feel overwhelmed.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

Create problems that if solved, will demonstrate the student's proper understanding of material. Another good way is to have the student explain in their own words how and why.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

A lot of positive reinforcement and repetition!
