What is your teaching philosophy?
Practice makes perfect. Students should get involved with learning the specific math problems and do examples rather than listen and take notes.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Get to know them, and then understand where they are having difficulties in their thought process.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By helping them understand the problem, and then later going on and teaching me.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By helping them understand and start getting problems right.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Go step by step and help them understand.
