I believe that every student has the right to learn. Growing up, I was denied help and I struggled in school but eventually I succeeded and flourished academically . If I am given the opportunity to help your child, I will try my best to help them using all the materials and methods I have learned throughout the years.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that as, a tutor, you have to keep trying with your student until they get it right. Everyone learns differently, and there is always a way.

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

I would ask the student about how they are learning in school. I would talk to them about their class setting and about the way their teacher teaches them. Then I would ask about hobbies to see if the student is a visual, auditory, kinesthetic, or musical learner.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By making learning fun with tricks, games, and rewards.

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

I would analyze what I know about the student to see what other ways they can learn. Ex.: movies, YouTube videos, visually with candy... etc.

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

Always have a thesaurus by your side so that you can help the student figure out synonyms for the words. I would also break down the passage into sections.

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

I would try to compare it to something I know they would like. For example, music and math go together very well.

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

I found that if you relate everything back to a hobby, then they will understand the concept better.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I believe that if you give a student good strategies to practice and study with, they will eventually feel confident enough to become an independent student.
