Depending on the student's goals, I approach each topic as it comes, and work through several examples with the student until they can work on their own, or I create a structured lesson plan with predetermined sub-goals for each session and work toward achieving a certain level of mastery within the student's subject.
I taught high school students and I have tutored college level students. I like to use a Socratic approach to teaching. What I mean by that is, I will do my best to ensure that you learn the material and come to appropriate conclusions on your own.
Since solving problems in math and physics is very process focused, I prefer to help students by working through a problem on the board showing each step and explaining if they have any questions. Then, I will challenge them with a new problem using methods and ideas learned earlier to test their skills. If I notice an area that needs improvement, we can focus the session on that issue.
My approach is friendly and personalized, building on student's existing skills and knowledge base to increase their confidence in their own abilities. I encourage students to practice problem solving and to be "hands-on" with the material as much as possible. I utilize direct instruction in small chunks, only as necessary in between practicing the material.
My idea of teaching is to not only help students learn the material for the exam, but to also help them develop the skills they need to succeed in future math and science courses. Learning the sciences can be frustrating, and I realize that not every student will learn in the same way. I make sure to teach the material in a variety of ways so that all learning types may benefit.
Hi, I'm a highschool graduate who is self educated in philosophy and physics. I developed a theory on gravity from studying planetary development. I extend such knowledge into astrophysics and thermodynamics. My method of teaching is utilizing textbook information to teach physics by designing a planet. Drawings, email, Internet, and textbooks will be used as ways to teach.
I like to help students get to answers on their own, more than spoon-feeding them information. I informally test students as I go to help them on the path to success. I am willing to teach children from 2nd grade up to 12th.
My teaching method is catered differently to each individual or group. I find the best way for the student to learn and retain information, which include me bringing study materials (extra worksheets, flash cards, review pages, etc.) or creating these study materials with the student. I make sure that the student feels more confident in the subject by the end of tutoring.
My teaching method is very rigorous but effective. I first start by asking students a few questions to really hone in on where exactly they are having problems. I, then, work with the students to determine their strong and weak points. I then come up with a schedule that is flexible to help students learn at their own pace.
My teaching methodology is both instructive and collaborative.
First of all it is primordial to identify student knowledge and background on the subject, to design a program in which by using challenging questions, student is able to construct it's own way into developing concepts for a better learning.
I base my classes on my experience in the classes I have taken so that students are best prepared for what they will encounter. I prefer to develop a plan that best suits each person individually for the classes they are in.
In order for the student to succeed the teacher/tutor must learn to adapt to the way the student learns. Not all students learn the same way and we as tutors/mentors/teachers must learn to recognize this in order for us to adapt to the needs of each student.
I take the time to understand my student's needs and also to figure out in which areas or operations they are most likely to have difficulties. I try to follow a model of graduated release: initially working most of a homework problem but over time providing more opportunities for the student to work out the problem on their own.
My teaching method depends on understanding between the tutor and the student. I always ask myself how I would like an idea explained to me if I were learning it for the first time, and I would rather explain topics more slowly and have a student ask me to speed up than go too quickly and risk a lack of understanding.
I have a PhD in astrophysics and more recently a qualification in garden design. I love learning and will help you find a way to enjoy your maths and/or physics lessons. I am a firm believer that we are all naturally scientists but that sometimes we loose the thread of our subjects.
BS University of Chicago Physics and Applied Math MS University of Chicago Biogeochemistry PhD Princeton University Geophysics Have taught classes in physics, mathematics, chemistry, physical chemistry, biology, biochemistry, oceanography, environmental science, geology, geophysics, paleontology, at both the university and high school level.
I base my teaching method around the socratic methodology. That is, I simply encourage the students to learn for themselves to better understand the subject. I am there to guide them in the right direction and help them learn the material needed to be successful in the course.
I tailor my tutoring sessions to the specific needs of the student. Together we consolidate existing knowledge and proficiencies and build upon them to gain additional academic, technical and life skills. Rather than memorization of facts and formulas, I focus on integrating knowledge and learning to learn.
I am a recent graduate of Wheaton College (MA) with a Bachelor's in Physics and a minor in Astronomy. My teaching style utilizes simple explanations and helpful diagrams, and my disposition is always enthusiastic and patient. No student is unteachable.
My teaching methodology is driven by comprehensibility and applicability. To comprehend a subject or some part of a subject, the student must first be able to relate to it. He or she should see examples of how it works, and then to see for themselves that it does work and can be used.
I tutor students of all abilities, from high schoolers to physics and math majors. I am attentive to the goals and needs of my students and tailor the lesson to what they need. My goal is to have every tutee solving problems on their own so that they feel confident on the material during exams and homework sessions.
I teach by example. A short introduction or review of the topic followed by step by step examples of problem solving until the student is comfortable with the appropriate concepts. When were done, the student will know what a problem as asking for and immediately be able to solve it.
I will teach any student who needs help with physics, mathematics, chemistry, writing, and literature/reading. I will help any student with physics up to thermodynamics, math up to calculus 2, general chemistry, college-level or below writing, and any literature/reading. I teach through asking questions and providing support where necessary.
I have a College Degree In History and Education. I utilize various approaches to teaching based on the student and his or her ability to learn and master the subject matter. I always present a diagnostic assessment to check to what level the student is at.
I prefer to work with students one-on-one or in small groups. I am flexible in meeting the learning objectives of students. When teaching a subject, I like to start with the foundation for a theoretical model and the empirical evidence that supports it.
My teaching methodology is catering to the student's needs, once I acquire the way my student is best at receiving information, I'm able to craft the best learning environment for them. I have books from my past classes that I have stored that will serve as assistance to teaching my students.
I try to explain the topics (especially conceptual ones) in a way that younger students see the world. I understand that when something seems difficult, people tend to refuse to keep working. I try to help my students see that each task can be simplified enough to not be scary, and that they can solve anything when tackling problems with confidence.
My teaching philosophy is that everyone learns in different ways. The best way is to customize the method the teacher presents information and to work with students on problems instead of leading them through or supervising their progress. Interacting in a friendly manner is also an essential aspect of teaching.
I think a great way learn is to gain as much exposure to a subject as possible with plenty of examples so that you can see the patterns that exists within subjects, that way when you see something unexpected you understand the idea of the problem so that you can attempt a solution.
