Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My philosophy of teaching evolved from many years of teaching experience. As I reflect on my beliefs regarding teaching and learning, I find that my mission as a teacher is threefold: to promote positive learning; to spark learner enthusiasm for learning; and to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning.

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

I will try to find out his/her understanding of the subject by asking some fundamental questions.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Teach him/her how to use available resources like reference books, videos, handouts, etc.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By asking questions, and encouraging him/her when they answer correctly.

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

I would identify the lack of understanding and determine whether or not we simply need to review or take a fresh approach to the concept to be learned. Sometimes you just have to go back to basics.
