What is your teaching philosophy?
My philosophy of teaching has evolved from many years of tutoring experience. Teaching is the opportunity to share knowledge with students through a personalized experience. My goals while tutoring are to promote positive learning, to spark learner enthusiasm for learning, and to provide a strong foundation for lifelong learning. To accomplish this, I enjoy applying a wide variety of strategies based on educational principles that start with instructional planning and assessment in order to provide a comprehensive and personalized teaching experience.
