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 adapt to each student's skill level and try to come up with and use useful examples to make the connection between the theory and practice clearer. Physics is not some abstract concept such as mathematics, however, in order to understand or better yet to communicate ideas in our modern view of physics it is necessary to understand the math, which I try to make as intuitive as possible.
As a teacher, I believe in mixing up my teaching based on the material, rather than trying to fit the material into the same pedagogical box. I try to cultivate an enthusiasm for the study of communication by illustrating my own enthusiasm for the material. I love what I do and I let that show in the classroom through the charismatic presentation of course material.
I base my teaching methods on providing the proper framework for problem solving and critical thinking, developing the students ability to solve problems. I give lessons to everyone from elementary school to college students and have experience in all of these levels.
I like to keep my sessions active and high energy. I believe by showing clear concise examples that capture the concept and then applying these concepts to more difficult problems for the student to work through with my help. No concept gets passed over until a comfortable understanding is obtained.
I base my classes on approaching the material that the student identifies as their weakness, and building up their confidence incrementally using the Socratic method, once the student has a grasp conceptually, we move on to approaching applications through problem sets.
I base my classes on whatever subject area a student may need help on the most and eliminating the problems from that subject area. For instance, if a student needed help on the "Thermodynamics" section of AP physics 2 or any physics class, then I would provide my notes on that section, which I have a plethora of, and help the student on whatever questions he or she may have.
I am a graduate physics student at the University of Texas at Dallas completing my final year of a PhD. I have given lessons to graduate, undergraduate, and high school students in both math and physics. I have also tutored for the physics portion of the MCAT. My lesson structure is first assessing their current level of knowledge and understanding.
I believe that the best way to learn is through interaction with tutor and colleagues. I work to make my teaching more interactive so that students can learn to feel comfortable asking questions that they do not understand. Giving real life problems and helping to solve them is my priority as well.
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.
BS/BA Physics and Applied Mathematics Evergreen State College 2018 AS Electrical Engineering Seattle Central College 2015 Born in Seattle 1985 I strive to meet each person where they are at. My style is to ask open ended questions, lead the person while offering explanation, resources and transparency along the way.
A passionate Physics teacher who graduated Secondary Education course in the Philippines but I am now in the US. I always see my students as unique from others and give them opportunities to learn through helping and guiding them.
In all my years of teaching students at various levels, several essential themes for effective teaching have come to light.
My teaching method is walking through each individual problem with a student and asking them first how they believe they should approach the problem. I try to guide students to the answer rather than give it to them directly. I often make analogies when I teach, for example if I am tutoring calculus 3, I make parallels to content they have already mastered in calculus 1.
I have completed the classes required for a physics major, but I generally tutor lower level physics courses like Newtonian, and Electricity and Magnetism. I also tutor Algebra and Calc 1. When I am teaching, I let students arrive at the answers themselves.
I tend to explain a concept that the students need to learn, then I show them a simple example. From there I let them try a different example. If I see that they have a misconception then I will guide them through the problem. the following problems will get more and more complex until they understand the concepts.
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.
My philosophy when it comes to teaching is to first diagnose what the problem is, then I will show you step by step where you went wrong and finally comfort you in showing how to get it right with making any mistakes again.
My teaching method is more hands on. I like to encourage students to think critically and ask as much questions as possible. I have taught physics, mathematics, and chemistry at high school and college levels. I try to be available for students and to answer their questions as often and as soon as possible.
I'm looking for students in either high school or college working on finishing math or physics classes. I prefer one on one tutoring sessions where we work towards understanding the material in such a way that you feel comfortable when it comes to taking your test.
I solve many examples and explain each of them in details. I answer all of your questions. I help for the homework assignments. I make solutions very easy. I give you confidence to solve all kinds of problems. Don't worry at all. It's so easy.
High school teacher certified in: Physics, Chemistry, Physical Science, and Environmental Science. BS in Education from Nicholls State 1992 MNS (Masters Natural Science) Louisiana State University 2012 Lessons provided for high school juniors and seniors and college students in freshmen level chemistry or physics.
I have masters of science in physics, 2016 from the university of Washington/ Seattle.
My teaching style consists of rigorous detail of concepts coupled with fun and engaging examples thrown in. I make efforts to find and cater to specific learning styles as well.
My teaching methodology involves immersion through unpacking challenging subjects to engage students and the implantation of problem solving strategies to produce the best results. I also focus on study habits, test taking tips and supplemental materials to help students who need additional help.
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.
I teach at a charter school in Hyannis and have taught in 3 different schools internationaly. I want to tutor Physics to struggling high school students. I will try and identify the difficulty for each student and cater to it specifically.
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.
I have taught online for 8 years or so with UOP, in a group setting, but I can also teach individually. This was non-Calculus based, but I would actually prefer Calculus-based Physics or Math. I would emphasize conceptual understanding as well as problem-solving.
Toriana Nelson Only 18 and but will I be the best tutor you will find. Can help with any subject from 1st - 12th grade, anything math, science, history, English, grammar, and Spanish. Though I am young I took all Advanced Placement classes in high school and use to tutor kids in the library after school.
