I am a college graduate and I have had tutoring experience throughout my life. In addition to working with tutoring agencies, I have tutored my own two children from primary school through their undergraduate years. With this experience I am confident I will be to tutor children of all ages and all levels of experience.
Learning technical subjects requires problem solving. Concepts are be explained clearly if there is a need. Otherwise, practice is the focus. Active learning is best in any subject. Teaching strategy in test taking is beneficial to many students. I want to help students learn problematic material. Beating fear of success is possible through sustained small successes.
My focus in tutoring is always to help my students build their skills and confidence, step-by-step. I will tailor your lessons to your needs and your unique way of seeing the world. Above all, I approach every lesson with awareness, patience and respect.
My teaching methodology varies from person to person but always starts with first idenitifying eactly what you are having the most trouble understanding. This is extremely important; because, each and every person has their own thought process and background. I will then tailor explanations and examples to your specific needs.
I want each and every student to understand the subject and what it entails, not just how to do a specific problems. I attempt to create an understanding in the student that takes them much further than my tutoring sessions. I will first identify your deficiencies in the given subject, and then fix those problems along with proving a solid foundation to the subject.
My lessons usually involve explaining the concepts and solving a lot of problems. I believe that solving a lot of practice problems helps to understand the material and grasp the main concepts very quickly. I prefer solving practice problems on a whiteboard.
My teaching method is a constructivism approach. I design lessons for every student in a manner that they there is great retention by having them construct their own concept of a particular subject. Students have to be actively involve so that they can master the content they need.
I prefer in-person teachings for high school or college level students. I ask that students make me aware of trouble areas prior to us meeting so I am able to prepare a schedule for that session. I am a student myself, so I understand how hard it can be to grasp a subject, especially chemistry.
My teaching methodology is to focus on one particular subject at a time and become an expert at that subject. At that point, it is easy to teach at a basic level for even the most difficult of subjects.
I like to approach tutoring sessions by knowing not only what the topics are but also with what specifically the student is struggling. Each student is different with different needs and I like to tailor my approach to meet those needs. I also regularly ask students for feedback on how I can better help them reach their goals.
Hello, My name is Dr. Norman J. LaFave. I have a PhD in physics from the University of Texas at Austin and a B.S. in physics and mathematics from Carnegie-Mellon University. I have specialized in tutoring students in physics, chemistry, and mathematics at both the high school and collegiate levels for over 35 years.
The efficacy of our tutoring programs are due in large part to a teaching philosophy based on an interactive learning process which is designed to make the student’s educational experience more interesting and enjoyable while adhering to the highest academic standards.
I approach every topic by imagining how I struggled when I was trying to comprehend the subject and then apply that information to the student I am tutoring to not only help empathize and familiarize myself with their situation , but also to more efficiently teach the topic.
I provide lessons to students from the secondary school to graduate level. My philosophy is simple. I believe any effective tutoring should explain even the most complex subjects in simple, understandable ways. Once difficult concepts have been explained in simple terms, a student will have the understanding and confidence to do well.
In my experience with teaching students, one of the key aspects for a student to grasp a concept or topic is to make sure that the student is able to teach me the subject matter. In this regard my teaching methodology revolves around giving the student the ability to recite the information in way that I know they are capable of teaching it to others.
My teaching methods are based on a text book with what to memorize and what to understand. There are many concepts in science should take much more deeply understanding the principal rather than just memorizing. If you are fully understand the concept, it will take you less on memorizing. Memorizing formulas only is not a good way to be successful in any science.
I assess the student’s strengths and weaknesses as well as gauge their learning style, then explain theory and work through practice problems together, then have them do some asking me for help as needed. I focus on understanding rather than rote memorization unless absolutely necessary.
I am a civil engineer with a bachelor of science (B.S) degree from University of North Florida. I have experience tutoring middle school, high school and college students. While tutoring, I focus on getting the task at hand done and simultaneously helping the student strengthen concepts in their field of study.
Master of Science in Chemistry. Synthetic organic chemist with actual research experience and publication. A responsible, positive and fun teacher. Bilingual: English/ Mandarin Chinese.
I graduated from the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in 2014 with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science, concentrating in mapping technology and watershed science. I was employed by Ramboll Environ, an Environmental Engineering company, part time while in college from 2010-2014, and full time from 2014 to 2016.
My teaching method is beginning with a simplified lecture and notes intertwined with retrieval practice and comprehension. The lessons will be catered to whether the student is a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learning and include real life analogies, comparisons, and mnemonics to emphasize student memory along with comprehension.
My teaching tactics are based on what my student wants to get out of the lessons. If you want homework help, practice problems need to be gone over. If you want to understand a concept better, reading the textbook and online sources may provide insight on a new way to understand it.
I know many secondary teaching techniques, as I've had many classes over that topic though college. Activities are key and my main focus is making sure the students understand the concept, not just memorize how to use it.
In the several and different educational levels and settings I have taught, and still teach, I approach each group of students, or each individual student, in a unique way and method that addresses and meets their specific needs. I strongly believe that everyone can understand and do Mathematics and Applied Sciences. They just need the support and the guidance.
My main goal in teaching is making the subject easier for you to understand, and hopefully help you appreciate it more. That being said I expect you to work hard as well. If you are stuck somewhere I will definitely try to shed light and if you have any doubts about anything I will make sure you understand.
I observe strengths and weaknesses while asking questions through a variety of sources. Personal likes and enthusiasm is where I begin and build from that. I follow the client and set aside agendas so I can meet needs that occur during each session. Being flexible and intuitive gives me creative ideas of how to help each client learn.
My method is "practice, practice, practice!" After the concert is taught properly, practical experience brings proficiency. The lessons need to be structured to read, listen and ask questions, presentation of the subject (misconceptions gone), and practice solving problems. Then, we practice test on higher order thinking test questions that EOC, ACT/SAT, AP/IB tests require.
I always have this in my mind, If my student cannot understand the chemistry, maybe I should simplify the concepts more and more. If I cannot make that concept simpler then Perhaps I myself need to learn and practice more. If the chemistry does not come with a simple example of it then the chance success is not that much high.
I received my PhD in chemistry from the University of Alabama last year. I have worked as an adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College. My lesson structure is to reinenforce what was learned in school and attempt to get ahead of the class. I'd like the student to be seeing the material in class for the second time.
Deaserae Domangue (concealed information) but call me Dez. (concealed information) Lessons for any age. I do not give answers in science. I give u the tools to come up withanswer on ur own because these are topics you will have to master because they are built upon.
