Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Teaching concepts, and building on fundamental concepts in order to understand the complex concepts.

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

Try to understand the what the student wants out of tutoring, and understand what is the best way they learn. We would try different approaches at first and find the way that seems to work best.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Give some reading or problems, and discuss those problems/ reading during the beginning of the next session.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Encourage them by showing them that they are actually learning the material, and that they know the material, by asking them difficult questions in a way they can answer, and build up on that.
