I am a recent graduate of Pacific Lutheran University. The areas I excel most at are Reading and Writing. The way I feel that I can help students learn is by finding a study method they are comfortable with, making it work for them, and providing helpful encouragement.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would review the information that the student has learned in class, in order to understand what they student knows, does not know, and how best to teach the student in accordance with the teacher, about the particular subject.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
First I would find out how the student studies best. If they learn best by repetition or writing things down, I would encourage them to do this and provide the necessary tools to do this on their own, and in their own way, in order for them to be successful.
