Academic tutor interview questions shared by candidates
How do I know if my student is understanding the material?
First, look for facial and body-language cues. A tense expression, pursed lips, downcast eyes, etc., usually means lack of understanding. Second, asked leading, closed-end questions, and when possible ask open-ended questions, and give the marker to the student and have him/her complete the next problem.
I was asked to solve a problem from a text book, and then asked to explain that problem to an uncooperative 17 y/o girl, while the interviewer did their best job to be uncooperative.
