Hi, my name is Atul, my friends call me Anton or Anthony, and I would like to be your English and/or Mathematics teacher. For the past 3 years, I have taught English to the students in Honduras, Central America. There is no greater joy than to see students getting the knowledge to be better citizens. I chose to teach because I wanted to make a difference. I remember my high school teacher Mrs. Mennon. She taught me the importance of being a good student. She took the time to offer extra help to all the students. While teaching in Copan Ruinas in Honduras, I had the opportunity to help students with a particularly difficult math concept that they were having trouble understanding. When I was able to show them a different way to approach the problem, and they got it. I knew then that I chose the right field.
My teaching philosophy is simple and that is to help students learn, just the way I had the privilege to learn. In the classroom I learn from the student as much as they learn from me. I realize that each student learns in his or her unique way and that is why my teaching approach is holistic so that no student is left behind. I like to encourage a positive classroom behavior emphasizing equal interactions with students, being aware of students with special needs and establishing clear learning goals. Let us agree on a set of classroom rules together as a class. I will listen to each student as we go through this wonderful learning journey. I want to make learning fun for all students and I believe the only way I can do that is by having a positive, helping attitude. I will help you learn because I have a passion for teaching.
