My teaching method is to assist the student in discovering the solution on their own. I have found students in physics course often memorize formulas and misuse them due to a misunderstanding of the physics concepts.
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.
The children acquire concepts and skills (appropriate to the age level of each group) on solar system and stellar astronomy, human and robotic exploration of our solar system, living and working in space, night sky observation, planetary geology, and physics. Topics are tailored to the children's interests and everyday life, and learning experiences include hands-on activities.
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.
I always based my classes on empathy and comprehension of the difficulties of each student. I realized that learning to learn itself, is something critical to be able to progress. So I always try to understand the way that the student is thinking.
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.
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 is to ask questions that lead to answers to assist the student in the type of thinking it takes to do math and physics. I am patient and willing to look at an issue from multiple angles. I recognize that if a student does not understand something it is on me as a tutor to explain it from a different angle.
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 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.
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.
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.
I have masters of science in physics, 2016 from the university of Washington/ Seattle.
I am very patient and understanding. I believe having the students work out examples both individually and in groups after a brief introduction lesson is an effective method. Engaging the students in demonstrations helps tremendously in understanding physics problems and related mathematical word problems.
High school: Graduated with an A for all of the beta-subjects.
My teaching method is to lead students to understand each specific topic with emphasis on physics laws and teach how to solve the problems and how it applies to technology.
My teaching method would in most cases be to try to get a sense of who you are and how you think so I can take a shot at which teaching method works for you, then a little into the lesson ask how your doing and how you think I'm doing. Or something like that.
