My teaching philosophy is making sure each and every student can achieve through any class. I work diligently to make sure we focus and concentrate on the most needed areas until we have mastered them.

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

In a typical first session, I definitely would ask the student where do they feel they need the most help in.

In order to help a student become an independent learner, I would help them take all of their weaknesses and help them turn them into strengths.

Expressing to a student that they can do something is the biggest motivation a student can have.

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