Zelalem

I have been working in academic areas for the last 8 years studying, teaching and tutoring. I know how to help students in their specific subject related problems as well as improving study skills. I have studied chemical engineering both in my undergraduate and graduate programs, and because math is the foundation of engineering and used in problem solving, I am also confident in my abilities to help in that subject. I am open minded and easy to talk.

Undergraduate Degree:

 US Equivalent - BS, Chemical Engineering

Graduate Degree:

 Addis Ababa University - MS, Chemical Engineering

Music, movies, and soccer.

What is your teaching philosophy?

Students are the center of learning. We are facilitators and mentors.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

Greet my client and introduce myself. Once weニ_re finished greeting I will try to find what help he/ she needs.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

Basically I have to teach him/ her how to learn. I can apply different meta-cognitive techniques.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I have to show him/her how the topic we are working on helps him/her in real life.

If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?

I hope the student has something he/she knows; I start building on that.

How do you help students who are struggling with reading comprehension?

Sometimes breaking down a big sentence or paragraph helps students. I will show him how he can break down big sentences and learn new vocabulary.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

First, greeting and knowing each other helps in communication. Then I break down the topics in the given time slot and we will have new plan. The other strategy-- I encourage students to ask questions themselves and try to answer them by themselves.
