Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Enabling learners to discover science through guidance.

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

Get to know them: how do they learn and what their goal for a tutoring session will be. Tell them my philosophy.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Setting up questions that allow discovery with guidance.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Have many short-term goals and mini-quizzes that remind them that they are on pace for a bigger success.

Try to explain it another way.
