Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Practice makes perfect.

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

Introduce myself and get to know them. Understand what they are having trouble with, and why, and then jumping in.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I will do a problem with them, provide the theory, and then have them do a few problems on their own. At first, I will give assistance when needed, and then when I feel like they have a good grasp on the material, I have them do problems independently without my help. Once completed, we will go over the problem together.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I'd focus on the topic and try to understand why they don't get the topic. I'd provide an alternative perspective/way of explaining the topic.

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

I have them read a paragraph they are interested in, answer questions I had, and explain the paragraph to me.
