What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that it is important to both answer any questions a student has and help them understand how to do the work so they will do well on their own.

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

I will talk with them about their goals, work with them through a few problems to see their strengths and weaknesses, and introduce some ways for them to start improving on their weaknesses.

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

I would slow down to see what parts are more confusing to them and what they did actually understand. Then, I would try to relate that concept to something that is more comfortable for them.
