Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that teaching should be student-centered, and whatever decision of the teacher should be made with consideration of students' academic as well as socio-emotional needs. A good teacher should be able to recognize the similarities and differences among students, and should design learning tasks and adopt instructional strategies in accordance with students' background and differential needs. A good teacher should: 1. Provide an environment conducive to learning. In an atmosphere of mutual trust, students begin to share their ideas, and learning is enhanced. 2. Encourage the potential in students. Simple words such as "I know you can grasp this concept!" can motivate students to work harder. Students observe the expectations of success or failure that others have for them. When teachers provide students with challenging yet attainable learning tasks, self-confidence increases as they experience success in learning. 3. Acknowledge students' efforts. Recognition of students' efforts to overcoming a huge hurdle of learning in a "difficult" subject encourages students to be more active in their learning and open to challenging themselves. 4. Be organized and well-prepared. I expect my students to be organized and well-prepared, and I lead by example. 5. Take time to explain concepts. Time spent reinforcing the subject matter, either deriving the formula or theorem or providing more examples for individual or group work, ensures that students establish a solid grounding upon which to build their knowledge.
