Q & A

How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?

I would try to relate the concept being taught to something familiar or tangible to get them excited/engaged.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

I would use both formative and summative assessments to determine if students are learning the material.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

I would highlight and narrate the positive growth they make and continue to encourage them to set goals.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

Assessments and observations are my primary methods for evaluating students' needs. I use this data to determine my course of action with them.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

I constantly assess their learning throughout a unit to determine what areas they need support in and which areas they can move on from.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

I use traditional materials (paper, pencils, worksheets) in addition to technological resources (phone, tablet, apps). I will use whatever will engage my students and help them grasp the concepts being taught.

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that all students can learn, and skillful educators have to have strategies to meet the needs of all types of learners.
