Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is basically to assist students in passing assigned mathematics and physics. I happen to have developed an interest in solving mathematical and engineering physics problems, and I believe I should pass on this knowledge to others.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Introduce myself, and then learn about the student's goals for the course being taken.

By advising the student to practice more often because learning happens through repetition.
