What is your teaching philosophy?
A good lesson should be told like an interactive story. People remember things even if they don't want to if you can make them laugh, get them invested, and see it through to the end.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Identify the specific weaknesses of the student. I'm not a teacher, but a tutor. So I have to figure out what the student specifically struggles with so I can maximize effectiveness.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can make custom note sheets tailored to the student's needs so that any lessons we have covered can be reviewed at leisure.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
I'd work to break the material down into bite sized pieces. Even if they've only mastered a small chunk of the material, it's still something they've learned, which will boost their confidence, which in turn motivates them!
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Try to relate the skill/concept to something they've already shown to master. If I can teach it using a method that's proven successful in some other area, it will boost the likelihood that they will learn it.
How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?
I'd turn the lesson interactive. Sure, reading about a Greek philosopher may be drab, but if you can picture what's happening, you can remember what you've read. Or if I can relate to something else a student has read, it will stick better.
