I was born in Armenia and moved to NYC 11 years ago. Ever since then I've been working hard to achieve my goals of becoming a doctor. I haven't chosen the straightforward path to that. I decided to get my PhD in Biochemistry first because I realized how much I love and enjoy learning it.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Creating a friendly environment leads to more success in students. They feel comfort and are more prone to asking questions or asking me to explain something again.

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

Introduce myself, ask the student about their classes and what they are having trouble with. Get a general sense of their weaknesses so I can focus on strengthening those areas.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I can give tips on studying independently. Things that I have picked up through my undergraduate career.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By focusing on small progress rather than looking at a larger picture. Looking at the final goal can be scary, but focusing on small progress keeps students motivated.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

Think of a different approach to explain. Bring more examples as I explain.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

By breaking down certain aspects of such reading, and giving my opinion on said reading and what I think the said reading means.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Once I explain a topic to a student, I give them a question to do and ask them to talk it through and explain it to me as if I don't know. This way, they can actually see what part they understand and what part they do not.

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

From my own experience, when I struggled with a subject and had the slightest improvement in it, that made me feel joy and happiness and motivated me to study harder. I would use small progress as a motivation and cause of excitement.

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

Ask the student to explain it back to me.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I ask them questions and ask them to explain certain topics to me. When they begin to struggle with a topic, that's how I know they need improvement.

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

I use different methods. If a student understands more with visual aid, I will draw out charts and graphs and pictures.

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

I prepare the material beforehand and bring questions with me. I also bring review materials that have helped me understand a topic better.

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

I usually tell them that everyone struggles at a certain topic and not to let a challenge bring them down. I bring my own shortcomings as an example to make them feel better.
