I am experienced working with students who have learning difficulties and also enjoy working with students who need to be challenged more. I am creative and love getting to know students on a one-to-one basis. I also have the ability to explain complicated concepts in many different ways.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe students should be encouraged to be the best they can be with appropriate support and guidance from teachers, their school, and tutors. I believe students should be able to succeed at school no matter what their background may be. I strive to do my best by all students and encourage them to be their best.

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

In a typical first session for elementary/middle school students, I would want to see the student's past work. In a writing session, I might come with some prepared questions for them to answer. In a reading session, I would ask them to bring the book they are currently reading. For math, I would want to look at their most recent notes or tests (from class, not standardized) and work through the problems they did not understand. For high school and college sessions, I would encourage them to guide the session, but would also look at their homework and past work to know where to start. For all students, I would start out with a conversation so we can get to know each other.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can help a student become an independent learner by increasing their organization/time management skills, and figuring out what motivates them to want to learn, using that knowledge to encourage them to succeed as an individual.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would help a student stay motivated by figuring out what motivates them. I would ask them what their goals are in and outside of the classroom. We would then figure out what steps they need to take to accomplish those goals.
