My teaching philosophy is to help the student master the subject through question and answer. Sometimes, when I am asked a question, my response will be phased back to the student in the form of a question. This allows the student to think and talk through the question out loud, often times they are able to answer their own question. I feel that this discovery on the students part will allow them to remember the answer and go on the accomplish even greater tasks.
