What is your teaching philosophy?
As an educator, I am dedicated to providing individualized learning to meet the needs of students. I am a certified elementary teacher looking to reach as many students' needs outside of the traditional classroom that I can.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By promoting confidence and teaching strategies for problem-solving, I can create independent learners.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By providing instant feedback to the student's successes.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
I would reteach, use a variety of strategies for the student, and connect the content to reality.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
With reading comprehension, it is often the lack of reading strategies that need improvement or the basic phonics skills. I would gather the student's reading level and go on from there based on their needs.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
By making connections with students' personal life, students become more engaged and interested in their learning.
