I love helping people and enjoy assisting those in learning. I really enjoy passing on my knowledge and watching the look on someones face as they understand something they didn't before.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is to compare the topic at hand to something that is interesting to the student. If you can make it more fun or interesting to them, it will be easier to understand. They might even enjoy it!

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

I would assess how to approach the teaching strategy. Get to know them a bit, and find out what interests them and see how I can make it relate to the topic we are studying.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

By showing them how, and then watching them do it. Let them do it on their own, and then go through it with them and correct them where they might have stumbled.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

Relate it to something they do understand. I would simplify it for them and consolidate the necessary information.

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

I would read it first, and then come up with important points in the reading. Then I would ask them to approach the reading by answering specific questions that highlight the main topic.
