What is your teaching philosophy?

"I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand." I want my students to understand what they are learning. I want them to feel comfortable enough with the concepts that they can teach it to someone else.

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

In the first session, I like to figure out the student's learning style. I also like to outline the student's weak areas and then map out a plan of action with the student.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Independent learning comes from having a solid study plan and knowing how to tackle different types of material. I would help the student to create a study plan that focuses on content review, and then practice questions to reinforce.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Encouragement & positive reinforcement!

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

Tackle the concept from another approach or use a different teaching method.
