Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that all students are capable of excellence! Most students just need the right teacher to motivate them. I am here to help become your personal inspiration.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would ask the student what they need help with and what they want to get out of tutoring. Then, I would tailor my approach from there.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I will not do things for the student, but "coach" them to learn from their mistakes and approach learning as something that takes time but has awesome rewards.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I will help a student stay motivated by connecting with them personally. Once a student feels that I care about them and their learning, they will want to learn more.
