My intent as a teacher is certainly to create in my learners a deep recognition as well as self-assurance when answering exam questions and managing to deal with unknown cases. The base of my approach is the opinion that learning occurs in an environment of mutual appreciation where the person is supported to think and find relationships for themselves. My practical experience has been that personal lesson has a unique importance to learners through the option to resolve the children' personal barriers to study in a way which sets the bases for a long-term and thorough comprehension of the subject.
My approach depends on the student's needs and learning style. My teaching ideology is based on inspiring learners to think for themselves, using existing situations as long as it can be. |My opinion is that it is essential to provide students with a working skills and to practice analytical skills for establishing upon this knowledge. Training anyone to think analytically is at the core of things that a student have to take away off any subject course.
The most important contribution
The most long-lasting improvements a tutor are able to bring in is coaching students, and it is a procedure, which I consider to be enjoyable and beneficial. From my practice, I learned the value of engaging students with the help of examples and of delivering content at a degree which implies intellect but not specifically knowledge, mixing the known with the unknown within a combination that provides the scholar the feeling of likelihood instead of that one of impossibility that impressive and authoritative methods may lay down.
How I teach
I start from topics the learners are good with and step regularly towards more challenging parts while their self-confidence is being established. I don't ever lecture to learners or ask them to memorise Information.
I usually focus on test-style or last paper questions in order to analyse, exercise and improve the learner's comprehension and practice. I will also give a lot of accent to a number of the less vital but obvious skills which include logical thought, essay structure and technique, and the efficient use of graphs and numbers.
