My teaching methodology is student centered. I believe a student learns best when he or she is performing an application. I use activities and resources that include primary and secondary sources, graphic organizers, games, sorts, music, video, political cartoons, and poetry.
I am adept and conscientious in preparing lesson plans that are specifically catered towards the abilities of my students in order to both encourage and challenge them during their pursuit of knowledge. While I specialize in History lessons, I also know that writing and test taking skills are crucial to a students success.
What works with some students might not work with another. Creating an individual success plan for each student is how you get the best results. Starting with a baseline assessment to evaluate what specifically is causing the difficulty in the class and then going from there.
My teaching methodology is based on how I was taught through my studies at CSU Long Beach. I will approach the various historical topics on the theories that most influenced my work which I believe makes history more relevant to the students. This theory/approach is what is called cultural and subaltern history.
My passion is educating others in a way that is relevant to them: helping students make connections and give them the skills and desire to understand how interconnected our collective history and geography are to us all! I like to make the ancient and obscure relevant to the present, it is the best way to understand the world around us!
My teaching methodology revolves around finding similarities in the past and applying it how it affects our lives today in a manner that is engaging to the student. In addition, my curriculum focuses on developing critical thinking as it is vital not only to the study of history but to living in an age of distraction and misinformation.
I am very hands on when working with students. I make every effort to create lessons that will be engaging and fun for each of the students that I am working with. Whatever the subject areas that we are working on it is important to me that I am ensuring that my student feels safe, secure and knows that I am proud of the efforts that they are making and they are working toward mastery.
I am a 16 year veteran teacher with a background in 7-12 Social Studies(government, US/World History, Sociology, Geography) as well as a background in Special Education(k-12). I like to have more of a background lecture that is short, then a discussion based on how it pertains to today's world. That connection makes history relevant.
I have ten years teaching experience in the International Baccalaureate Program, MYP Grades 6-10 (World History), and Grades 11 and 12 Business Management (Standard and Higher Level) Focus of lessons will be on simplification if content and how to connect the students content knowledge to the real world - through source analysis such as current events related to world history or business news...
My name is Jennifer Fayn. I am a certified teacher in the state of Texas offering History lessons to primary, middle, and high school students. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in History.
BA in History. MEd in Secondary Education. I have a passion for History and Civics. I give lessons in History, CIvics, and Social Science to Junior High and High school students. I work with students to evaluate historic events and connect them to today.
I am a college History professor that has taught all social sciences ranging from 8th grade to graduate level courses. I have been tutoring as well for the last few years. I can tailor a lesson for you on a specific subject or series of events; or, I can provide tutoring over a wide range of material based on your specific needs.
I am willing to tutor both high school and college-level students. In a one-on-one setting I will gladly tailor our sessions around the specific needs of the student. For group settings, I prefer to split time between lectures and group discussion.
I love to teach students through great discussion and Socratic questioning. History is much more than dates. I emphasize themes, cause and effect, and question students predispositions as we work together. Once a student can tell me what they think, then I push them to learn how to write what they believe.
My teaching philosophy is based on the belief that students know the best way to learn material, whether it be from lecturing, presentations, or trial-and-error. With that in mind I asses each student and create a lesson plan based on how they learn; this means that at every step of the way the student will be giving me input on how the lessons should be structure.
Recently, I have obtained my B.A. in Geography. I plan on attending tutoring Geography to those that are enrolled in the course. It can be from 7th grade to college level.
I have found that approaching studying techniques, different learning styles, and retention techniques is the MOST effective way to ensure success in tutoring, and it certainly shows in other subjects as well.
My method varies based on class and needs of the students
I am passionate about social studies and teaching, and bring to life the subjects that I teach or tutor. My best attribute is my adaptability- my ability to play to every student's strengths and interests to formulate a lesson that will inspire them to view and learn about their studies in a way they may not have previously.
I enjoy inquiry based learning. By posing the learner a question, analyzing facts and sources, the learner can better process the topic. I structure lessons with review/warm ups, then content, and wrapping up with a meaningful ending. I am a well organized teacher that will be sure to monitor progress and check for understanding.
I base my classes and tutoring on what works best for my students. For example, I read my students' Individual Education Plans so I can effectively educate them. I also establish appropriate relationships with parents to get them involved in my classroom. I discuss teaching strategies with other teachers to get ideas about how to effectively teach every kind of learner and student.
As a tutor, I let my students lead the discussions and the direction of the lessons. Particularly in history and politics, students don't gain any knowledge or enjoyment from a teacher lecturing at them; instead, by leading students towards an understanding of historical and political forces by creating a personal connection to the past, I can help them both understand and enjoy history.
My approach to teaching is to meet each student where he or she is within their understanding of both the content and the student's own understanding of the learning process. Understanding each student's learning processes is my starting point, followed by goal setting.
As a teacher I try to make the subject interesting and exciting to the student. I like to find their strengths and use them to help them succeed. Every child is like a ball of clay just waiting to be molded by the right person.
I try to use a conversational approach in teaching, to first see if there are any specific concepts that the student is having difficulty with. If the student has more general needs, I will begin with the most important concepts - or areas where students typically struggle - and progress from there.
I approach each topic with caution since I may not know the students current knowledge on the topic; however, I still believe in helping the student learn and achieve their best even if it means starting from scratch when it comes to the topic being discussed
My teaching style includes a lot of collaboration. I want the students and I to find what's most beneficial and effective for learning.
I'm a recent college graduate from the Ohio State University with BS degrees in International Relations and Economics with a love for history. To me, history is a journey through the past, present and future that should be brought to life.
I completed a Master's degree in Human Resources because I love helping public school students and adults. You will find me to be a person who gets to know the student, their strengths,weaknesses, and goals for the future. My teaching experience has been 6-12 public school, plus all grades subbing, plus I was a human resources instructor in the Army for 18 years.
I am a Texas state certified history and social studies teacher. I have a bachelor degree in History from the University of Houston - Clear Lake. I have four years experience as a classroom teacher. I am seeking to instruct and/or tutor students in all areas of history and social studies, as well as in reading and writing.
