Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

People learn in different ways, so I like to adjust to their learning style instead.

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

Formally introduce myself, and ask what I can help him/her with.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By helping him/her understand the concept behind every question.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

By helping him/her stick to a study schedule and making the study sessions interesting.

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

I would try a different approach of looking at the question itself.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

By helping them read and enunciate difficult words.
