Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
Learning is partially the teacher's responsibility, and partially the student's responsibility. I won't throw you to the dogs and expect you to learn anything on your own without explaining it to you first, but I do expect that you thoroughly learn that material before the next time we meet to avoid having to re-explain the basics. Most concepts in any subject are based on prior knowledge -- usually cumulative information within the chapter you're studying -- so it will be very difficult to keep making progress if you don't put in the time to master the concepts after each session ends.
