Interviews typically consist of subject-specific questions that will assess your academic proficiency. You should also expect to answer some behavioral and situational questions, such as how you would motivate a disinterested or discouraged student. Skills that are sought after include interpersonal, problem-solving, and goal-setting abilities."

Example: If you are teaching a student math and he/she like The Nightmare Before Christmas, add the characters to the math problem. Jack has 12 pumpkin bombs and gives 7 to Sally. Zero takes 1. How many pumpkin bombs does Jack now have? Jack now has 4 pumpkin bombs.
