Q & A
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
In a typical first session, I would introduce myself to the student and have the student introduce themselves to me. Next, I would find out what their interest are. Lastly, I would see what concept they are struggling with and in what area they need help.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can help a student become an independent learner by giving them the proper tools to help them be successful in that certain subject area.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I would help a student stay motivated by constantly encouraging them and providing constructive criticism when it is needed.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, I would break down that certain skill into steps so that the student would be able to understand that skill better.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
To help a student that is struggling with reading comprehension, you have to see what area of the comprehension they are having a hard time with. Once you find that out, then you are able to help them.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
Some strategies I have found most successful when working with a student is building a relationship and letting the student have ownership over their learning. I have found these to be successful because then the student begins to trust you enough to let you know what weak areas they need work in. When the teacher and the student have ownership over what they are working on, it really motivates the student to want to get better at that certain subject.
