What is your teaching philosophy?
If I can understand it, then so can anyone who is willing to listen to me long enough.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
Ask the student about their strengths, weaknesses, and what they hope to get out of the tutoring experience, as well as how far into the subject they have gotten, and then give a few practice questions or a practice exam.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
I can't force someone to take initiative, but I can (and will) assign extra work to do. The most important thing is to improve confidence, so that learning becomes rewarding rather than distressing.
