Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe that everyone can be a life-long learner. I also believe in seeing each student as a unique, gifted individual, and that students will rise to the bar that has been set.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
Review, review, and review. Have the student teach ME!
