This is about subject-verb agreement.
How should I re-write this sentence:
"Either the interviewer or the committee members usually begins by asking simple questions about your background."
"Each of the instructors are attending the conference next weekend."
How should I write these two sentences.

The first sentence is correct; the second is wrong.
Either and each are both singular subjects and take singular verbs.
