Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
In the past, I worked for a school system and was told to teach certain units to students at certain times. However, I did not find that effective. All students learn differently! We cannot expect them all to be at the same pace. I always incorporated my own ideas into my lesson to fit the needs of the child. To this day, I have found that to be the most effective. I incorporate games and rewards for my child students. And for my adult students, I focus on interesting topics and use current news to guide my lessons. I enjoy teaching, and I believe teaching and learning should be fun!
