Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe that rote memorization is secondary to the application of trends and principles. It is much more effective to learn the general case and apply it to specific instances.

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

I check for understanding as we go through a subject and build on previous knowledge one step at a time. Reviewing the previous session's material briefly also helps.

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

Small steps! Learning is a process, and knowledge comes in blocks.

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

I like to use the student's textbooks as a starting point, and branch out with supplementary material that goes into more detail. I tailor this material to each student's interest.

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

I like to take a minute to assess where the student feels they are in a subject before diving into the knowledge. It's important to make sure the foundations of a subject are secure before moving on to advanced subjects.

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

It is imperative that a student understands one concept before moving on to the next, as most knowledge builds one piece at a time. If a student is having difficulty learning a concept, I find it most effective to approach the problem from a new angle or to step back and re-contextualize the concept.
