Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I have two philosophies. 1. Practice makes perfect. 2. There's an angle to everything. I think there is always more than one way to approach a problem, and typically the test tries to make you think you need to take the harder approach.

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

First is definitely to talk to the student about what he has covered and what he needs help with, and then follow up with an assessment test or quiz. Once we know where we are with the subject, we can then structure a plan and the following sessions.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Creating a study system helps the student get the most out of the time he spends studying. Once I can help him find his best studying style, it definitely becomes easier for him to learn and retain information, and for me to help him.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

When it comes to solving some math problems, the process can be boring and long. We can mix it up with different types of problems like real world scenarios for example.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Getting to know the strengths and weaknesses of a student helps me adjust the way I teach. So definitely getting to know the student is extremely important.
