My teaching philosophy is that every student learns differently and has different needs. This is why I don't believe in a one size fits all teaching method. I asses each student and create a lesson plan based on their needs and the subject matter being taught. I have found from my years of teaching that this methodology is what works best.
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.
I approach each topic by giving the keywords to look for before doing a homework assignment or studying for any type of test.
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.
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.
I am a professional tutor specializing in history, government and social science at all high school and undergraduate levels, particularly Advanced Placement World History and US History. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of California, Berkeley in Political Science and Rhetoric with a minor in Human Rights.
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 a graduate of the prestigious University of Minnesota - Twin Cities in two of their undergraduate colleges. In their college of science and engineering, I graduated with a degree in Earth Sciences, which emphasizes Geochemistry and Hydrogeology, and in the university's college of liberal arts, I graduated with a degree in Linguistics.
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 believe in personalizing my lessons to the student. I want my students to be motivated, teenage and young adults, looking to attend college. I believe in positive, constructive critique and want to work for my students for their achievement.
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.
My plan is to become a teacher in the near future because I love education and see it as a key to success. My passion for teaching began in a martial arts class. When I received my black belt in karate, I became a instructor. It showed me how much I enjoyed teaching. My focus as a tutor is to help students achieve a passion for education to reach far and beyond their educational goals.
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 am a college student with one degree and several medical technical certifications ready to help anyone where needed. I hold a two year degree in general studies, mainly biology, and physical science classes. I am also EMT-B, IV, ACLS, PALS, and CPR/BLS certified. I have taken classes in anatomy and physiology, as well as pharmacology and cardiology.
