My name is Foram and I have been tutoring for 2 years now. I started tutoring due to the joy that comes with a student understanding a concept or problem that they saw no solution to.
I change my tutoring method based on the student since no one student has the same learning style. I am looking forward to meeting new students!

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
The best way would be to tutor how to study. A lot of students get frustrated because they don't study as efficiently as they could. After learning the best way for them, learning would be a simple task out of the day rather than something they are forced to do.
What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?
Getting to know how a student studies, what are his/her motivations behind doing well in their classes, and how they approach the questions they are having trouble with.
How would you help a student get excited/engaged with a subject that they are struggling in?
I would try to find an easy way to explain the problem to them, and compare it with something they would already know.
What techniques would you use to be sure that a student understands the material?
I would make up a problem that tests a few different concepts and see how they approach it. I would also add a tricky question to see if they use the concepts learned to solve it.
How do you build a student's confidence in a subject?
A lot of students lack confidence only because they lack the understanding of the subject. After they learn the topic, I often compliment them on how easy it comes to them now than when they first started.
How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?
I have often lectured, as some students learn by listening. I have also let the student teach me the concepts they are having trouble with. So, my lesson styles differ per student.
