I am a well-rounded individual that is able to communicate fantastically with kids. I never let myself get frustrated with pupils, which is a strength of mine as I can explain the same concept in a variety of ways until I feel comprehension has finally been reached. My ultimate goal is not to simply make sure a child knows a formula, but more importantly the concept behind that formula, and under what circumstances it needs to be applied. With my help, I can make sure pupils learn not only the what and when of a concept, but also the why and how. In my eyes, very few things are as fulfilling as teaching and making friends in the process.
What is your teaching philosophy?
My teaching philosophy is as follows: "No student is too dumb to understand, for differing plants need to grow under differing conditions."
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
My first session with a student would be one that evaluates the student's prior knowledge of the subject, and his/her character. Once I know how a student behaves and how they learn, I can judge what I need to teach them, and how I should approach teaching them.
