I like literature and performing arts most in life. I tend to incorporate both into classes to blend into textbook work. If you're looking for a more creative approach to language, that's what I provide. I have plenty of books and media that I've used myself to further my own studies.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe in going with the flow of nature. One must walk before they can run and crawl before they can walk.

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

I like to know personal preferences, so a fun personality test will be given.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

I like to hint at study skills throughout the course, ranging from note-taking to what exams look for.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

As a goal-oriented person, I like to keep track of progress. I like to remind students of just how much they've improved.

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

There are different types of learning styles. If lectures don't work, perhaps hands-on training? If not, maybe examples?

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

Comprehension is directly related to questions. I like to have students practice asking questions.

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

Building a relationship is just as important in teaching as it is in business.

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

To create excitement, subjects must correlate to interests. Once I find out, I work hard to blend them.

What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?

Practice makes perfect.

How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?

I always let students know the details of their improvement.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

I consider a combination of student interests, environment and ability when evaluating their needs.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

I rely on the wealth of material I've gathered over my years of teaching. I'm prepared for diverse learners.

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

Audio/Visual media and text are always a part of my classes.
