I am a responsible, outgoing, versatile, and friendly person with a business background. I graduated with honor from Gonzaga University in Business Administration concentrating in Finance and Economics. From my personal experience, students need constant engagement and motivation to learn. The learning process should be exciting and entertaining but not tedious and compulsory. Every student has unique attributes. Students appreciate any teacher who quickly understands their needs, breaks down complicated subject matter into simpler ones and goes the extra step to help the student succeed.
Recalling the learning process that helped me the most in my student life, I do my best to integrate the various tactics my professors used to make the learning process enjoyable and engaging. So, I teach using "Concrete to Abstract" teaching method. First, I introduce a familiar topic that is the best substitute for the next new concept I teach. Then, I associate the attributes of the familiar topic with the new concept. Students seem to quickly understand and recall the newly introduced concept because of the familiar example. I also help students with other learning strategies which help them work smart not hard.
I tutored Financial Accounting, Managerial Accounting, Micro and Macro Economics, Business Statistics, Business Math, Payroll, and QuickBooks in Spokane Community College from July 2017 August 2018.
I have proven experience in simplifying the complex concepts into simpler ones while teaching. I like to know every student's comfort zone since my examples vary from student to student due to their unique hobbies and interests. I found that students understand and remember the subject matter when associating it with the familiar examples. I believe that there is no complicated subject for students. If there is anything complicated, it is the way we teach. So, to be an excellent teacher, it is crucial to understand the student's familiarity with the subject matter while explaining.
Teaching is my passion. I feel proud when students vocalize their satisfaction with my teaching style. Therefore, I believe that it is essential to have a compelling desire and proficiency to assist students in their learning process effectively. So, I affirm that I have those necessary qualities to be an excellent teacher.
