What is your teaching philosophy?
Making it simpler and easier to understand. Break down the concepts! Drawing out images and flow charts are very helpful. Trying to understand WHY is more important than memorizing.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Introduce myself and give the student my background. Come up with a plan and study schedule.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Give them assignments and provide online resources to further enhance their studies.
