Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe learning is limitless. I am an advocate for self-motivation and dedication.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would assess the level of knowledge of the student regarding the subject area I am trying to teach.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I would provide the information and materials needed to fully learn independently. I would make sure the student comprehends all the information.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would continue encouraging the student. I believe failure is only a lesson and part of the journey of learning.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Slowly and clearly explain the skill or concept and assess what the student is not understanding to further teach him or her.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
I have the student stop and tell me what they have read so far. If the student is struggling with reading comprehension, I ask him or her questions about the text as they read.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
Strategies I have found to be most successful when I first start to work with a student are assessing the best way they learn, how to catch their attention, and what challenges them the most to fully understand how I can help them in every way possible.
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
I would help by making learning fun and turning it into an interactive activity.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
I would ask the student to explain the material back to me to demonstrate their understanding. Also, I would give them practice questions to solve.
How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?
I would constantly remind them of how great they are doing and positively influence the student into knowing how well they know the subject.
How do you evaluate a student's needs?
I evaluate a student's needs by assessing his or her understanding of the material and strengths and weaknesses in the subject.
How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?
Every student is different. I adapt my tutoring according to how each student learns best and their goals.
What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?
It depends on the subject. If it is reading comprehension, I use passages with different types of questions. If it is math, I use practice problems I make myself after reviewing the student's homework. If the student is a visual learner, I try to use materials that are hands on. The types of materials depend on the student's way of learning and needs.
