Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Every child has the right to a high quality education and to feel the success of accomplishing goals.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session we would get to know each other while I assess the level of the child.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
Students become independent learners when they create reachable goals based on their level of learning. Students, with the help of the instructor, reach the goals!
How would you help a student stay motivated?
Students stay motivated when learning is fun and meaningful!
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
When there is difficulty in learning a skill or concept, I would evaluate the previous lesson and reteach them. Sometimes reverting back to a foundation skill can help to tackle more complex skills.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
When students struggle with reading comprehension it could be that the text is too difficult. Evaluation of the student's reading level may be necessary, and practice sometimes makes perfect with this.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
Students learn best when their interests are associated with the lesson at hand. Learning the student and what motivates them helps them to be more successful.
