Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that knowledge should be spread among all and it is important that we share our knowledge with others. Teaching is the tool to achieve this goal, and it is an essential element to the evolution of the human species to the better.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I like to introduce myself to the student and get to know more about him or her. It is essential for me to get to know the student to understand what are his or her weaknesses.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
The secret is to pave the way for the student to like the subject and start feeling that he or she might be good at it. Many students hate the subject because of their teachers, therefore it is essential to figure out why the student is weak in this subject and work on the causes.
