Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

Make sure students understand what they just learned.

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

Go over his/her notes, and then do homework together. Then follow up with more problems, along with answering any questions along the way.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Teach him ways to optimize taking in information, in and out of the classroom

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Try to tell stories about my times and experiences as a student.

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

Explain the material more or provide them resources for further understanding.

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

Help them practice more and more.

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

Practice over and over again. Also, do many practice tests to prepare for exams.

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

Connect all the material with real life examples to show the importance of what they are learning.

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

Doing problems over and over again until they can actually do it themselves. Also if they can walk me through their own problems, that is a sign that they are ready.

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

Keep making the students do problems.

How do you evaluate a student's needs?

If a student keeps making the same mistake or spends far too much time on one step of a problem, that is their needs.

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

Provided problems themselves, the student's HW/notes, and any online material that we can google.

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

I slow down for parts they don't fully understand.
