As a teacher, creating a sense of excitement about learning is something that I am really passionate about. I believe that learning is crucial for young people as it will build a foundation for a future healthy lifestyle and a positive attitude. When I teach, I create an atmosphere in which students feel they can evolve and where they feel at ease whatever their ability. I am very enthusiastic about education and I would like the opportunity to make learning for others as enjoyable and fulfilling as my own has been. As a teacher, it is my role to provide opportunities for all, regardless of ability, and to ensure that everyone has a positive experience.
I believe very much in the saying: ‘If you can reach me then you can teach me’. I strive to create a constructive atmosphere by praising students while encouraging positive learning behaviors. This approach has proven to be quite effective. I produce and deliver high quality lessons, using innovative methods. Where possible, I like to give immediate feedback and allow my students to respond by correcting any misunderstandings. My knowledge and teaching methods enable me to teach students who are of mixed ability.
Through the use of different teaching styles and learning strategies that motivate, all learners have the opportunity to excel in areas of education. Forward thinking styles and adaptability will challenge all children to achieve.
It is my aim to combine my range of experiences with my ability to be a compassionate, enthusiastic and approachable practitioner who will make a positive contribution. I believe my academic achievements and experience will provide a solid foundation to build on and transfer my knowledge and skills into providing the best learning environment. I am diligent, determined, committed and feel that I can offer a significant contribution to the learning experience.
My interests outside my studies include a range of sports, martial arts, mechanics, and travel. I love the constant challenge of teaching and I sincerely believe that my organization, clear thinking and calmness under-pressure make me an exceptional teacher.
