I've been fortunate enough to experience all kinds of teachers, and I feel my own teaching style has been something of a combination of all their best aspects. I always begin by figuring out what the student knows conceptually, without considering numerical answers at all. This can be done through questions or just diagrams (I will pretty much draw a diagram for every question).
I do not teach according to a set standard. If given a problem or equation, I think of many possible ways to get to the answer. I myself think like this and would teach my students an efficient way to think and get to an answer and not just what is taught in class.
My teaching methodology ensures understanding because I won't move onto a new subject until one has completely understood it. I have a lot of real life experience so I will often use metaphors to relate certain topics to in order to make it more easily understood. I have teaching experience and have been a tutor in my AP Calculus class to fellow AP students.
My goal is not just to help students with specific subject help, but to teach students how to approach their studies in a way that is more effective. I hope to that with each lesson, my students feel more confident in their abilities to not only tackle current hurdles but take on future ones.
My methodology involves fostering an environment which encourages each student to be an independent learner. My goal is to guide you to the point where you no longer need me. I'll know I've succeeded as soon as I'm out of a job. I specialize in math (algebra 1 & 2, geometry, and trigonometry), SAT math, chemistry (high school, AP, IB, college), and biology.
I tutor all grades from elementary to college in mathematics, biology, and chemistry. After gauging the understanding level of a student, I customize the approach we will take together to guide your learning. As best as possible, we will integrate how your teacher or professor is approaching the material so you can understand it from how you will be tested.
I don't believe in one sort of teaching method-- my biggest focus as a teacher or tutor is learning how I can best suit my student. Exploring different studying and teaching methods and listening to/working WITH each student individually is the way to achieve academic success.
My lessons are geared to High School and Middle School students, but I can also help in college introductory courses. As I am beginning tutoring, the structure of my lessons will vary from person to person, gearing my methods to better fit the learning style of the student.
My teaching methodology revolves around two main ideas: tailoring my lesson plans based on the individual student's need for each lesson, and specifically preparing the students for exams and other high-point parts of a class, rather than a more general preparation.
I have learned through experience that students tend to learn better through a three-step process often used for young doctors going through medical school. The old adage goes, "see one, do one, teach one." In essence, I base the class around problems and solving questions. I will first show a student how to approach a type of problem.
My student enjoys my method because I work on his own needs. My students will learn different methods of solving mathematical processes and so they can choose the one that is easiest for them. Because I focus on what my student needs, my student win confidence on their own, making their grades better since the first classes.
I always found learning easier when it was interactive (office hours with teacher, sharing notes with friends, studying with friends, getting tutored, etc...) rather than individualistic (reading by yourself). Thus, I am a very interactive mentor. I often like to understand my mentee's thought process before I explain my own to them.
I have tutored elementary students in Math and reading as well as helping young adults and older adults in their studies for the GED exam. I tailor my classes according to the level of the student. I love to show demonstrations to the students as I explain a specific concept so that they are not only hearing the information but, also visualizing what is happening.
I usually adapt my teaching to the students learning style. I can offer a wide variety of teaching styles from audible learning, to reading, to hands on experience. I like to use the most current and up to date information and resources as most likely schools will have similar resources to use in the classroom.
Using problems from the curriculum to better understand the means of solving problems and understanding concepts. Slowly walking through difficult concepts until it is thoroughly understood. Willing to engage with outside resources to help accomplish this. Willing to meet wherever is convenient for the student.
Individual instructional methodology. Struggling students are desperate for content to be delivered in a fashion that is accessible to their learning style.
My teaching style is learning by example. I base my lessons on problems and lectures from class that students bring to me, and I try to explain things in a practical manner. I am comfortable teaching basic level chemistry, biology, math, and biochemistry.
I mainly prefer to make the subjects fun to my students. I do this by using a lot of visual and imaginative aids. The first few classes are always to figure out their present strengths and weaknesses and then to further improve on them.After that, I begin intensive relearning of the subjects and build on their strengths to reduce their weakness.
I teach using Socratic, and demonstrate and duplicate methodologies as well as example based learning. As a tutor I have used age and grade appropriate materials, as well as using the students own materials to create friendly atmospheres for learning. I am patent and kind but I do achieve results.
I give lessons to students seeking help in mostly science-based classes such as biology and chemistry. I approach the problems from a conceptual standpoint at first, which provides a base understanding for the learner to rely on, and then make connections to the specifics. Helping the student understand concepts on a fundamental level will help with retention and critical thinking.
My teaching methodology would be based on understanding the underlying concepts and applying them to problems. I will work through problems and reactions to ensure you understand the material as well as will be able to use methods on your own.
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.
I offer instruction to student from 8th-12th grade and college students. If you do not fit these categories don't fret! Please contact me regardless about what you may want out of this experience to see if I am able to offer tutoring.
My teaching method is to break down concepts into subtopics and then tackle each subtopic. I also like to be visual and tactile using drawing and manipulatives to teach. As a teacher, I used a project-based learning model. I also like to use humor when teaching.
My teaching methodology is to stick to the standards. I do not want to teach anything that will not be tested on. Straight and to-the-point is the best way to go for science classes. By doing this, I am an effective tutor. Students come in, ask a question or two, I help them, they have an "ah ha" moment, end of story.
I am an environmental educator by trade and focus on grades 4-8 in that setting. I have about 18 years of tutoring experience with Kindergarten through college.
My approach to teaching involves discovering and highlighting your strengths and then helping you to apply those unique skills to problem solving and learning. I am a very patient and easy going teacher who is happy to walk you through any confusion or questions. No matter how old you are or how much help you need, I am sure that I can help you master your toughest subject.
My teaching method is an interactive lesson structure. I explain the concept, show a sample problem, and give practice problems. I base my class material on my own notes from past classes and also make up new practice problems for my students.
In group settings, I maintain an atmosphere of respect, fairness, and fun, learning ( and I do my best, to keep subjects interesting with applied information and examples ).
I base my classes on focusing on difficult concepts the students needs to work on. I then break down the concept and explain it fully. In math, I would do show students how to do the problem, then do some with them (guided practice), then have them do problems independently, providing guidance when needed.
