Ejinkonye Hello. My name is Ejinkonye Anekwe. I am an anatomy and physiology instructor at Georgia Gwinnett College. I have been tutoring for approximately 10 years. I love to teach students. I love to make sure that people reach their goals. I believe that people are very intelligent and that with a little motivation they...... Teaching Philosophy Teaching philosophies vary according to personal experiences and subject matter. In my particular case, I would like to discuss my teaching philosophy as it relates to the natural sciences, particularly biology. I will discuss the importance of being an educator, followed by an explanation of my use of problem-solving strategies, as well as my expectation of student success. Becoming an educator has been a lifetime aspiration of mine. I consider myself to be well rounded in both the natural sciences and social sciences because I hold graduate degrees in both areas. I gained research experience through practicum learning, theses, and teaching. However, I believe an educated person should disseminate knowledge to as many people as possible. As an educator, I take academic information and format it into language that is commonly understood by students. I relate what is taught in the classroom to situations in the actual world. That relation enables me to be successful as a teacher. As for problem-solving strategies, I utilize examples in the classroom to encourage my students to think “outside the box.” For instance, in my classes, I sometimes present clinical situations in which students can test their academic knowledge. This allows students to think about the options that are readily available and to find the best solutions. In terms of biology, I explain examples of cases in the news, such as stem cell therapy, face transplants, and taxonomy. These stories are often found in peer-reviewed scientific journals as well as through media outlets. I steer my students towards valid, scientific information that is not only informative, but also interesting. In terms of my expectations of student success, they are simple: I want them to think. Critical thinking is perhaps the most important aspect of learning because students get to apply what is in the textbook and to analyze if those situations can work. If the situations cannot work, then the students can explore ways to improve the situation. In doing so, my students become analytical agents who can approach the world in an open-minded and inquisitive manner. In closing, my teaching philosophy focuses on real-life approaches to problems. Textbooks are great resources, but they only offer a limited source of knowledge. Applying knowledge in actual settings can challenge the learner to think of solutions. I challenge my students daily in my classes. I want them to think about what academic concepts can work and what concepts need improving. As a result, many of my students go on to four-year colleges and become successful in their chosen fields.
