Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe students are able to flourish on their own once they understand the underlying processes that are required to solve problems. Therefore, I coach students through their work by showing them how they should think as they face a problem.

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

Typically, I like to gauge where a student is in his coursework by asking what specific questions he may have or by looking at any study materials he may bring.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Students become independent when they are allowed to practice things on their own. I can teach a student the process of going through a math problem, but she becomes an "independent learner" when she can use the process I've taught her, apply it to different problems, and then apply it and other processes in order to solve increasingly complex problems.
