When I was in 8th grade, I was struggling with pre-algebra (I couldn't seem to wrap my head around distance/rate/time problems). I found myself loathing a class I had once loved. I started working with a tutor and going from barely getting by to being successful in that class was a very fulfilling feeling that I hope to continue to pass on to others.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

The best teachers are always trying to learn as well.

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

Get to know his/her likes and dislikes, and identify where they are strong to build up confidence. Create a friendly and casual atmosphere.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Build confidence through repetition and positive reinforcement. The student must believe that they can succeed on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

There are various ways to do this, depending on the student. By working with parents to develop a rewards system for some. For others, increased classroom success will be enough. Breaks within a session are also useful to help refocus.

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

Break it down into more bite sized pieces. Or frame the problem in a real world setting that the student can relate to.

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

Give the student questions that test a familiar concept but in an unfamiliar manner. If the student can recognize the steps to the solution, then he/she understands the concept.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

Teaching kids to use the internet as a resource when they are stuck is very valuable. Something that I wish I had learned earlier is that the internet is full of supplemental material that can frame a problem in a new light.

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

Positive reinforcement. A student has fun when he/she gets the answer right. Celebrate little steps forward, even if it is just figuring out the first step in a problem.

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

Again, students have more fun when they get the right answer. Break a problem down into simple steps, and provide confidence boosting feedback upon each completed step.
