My teaching method is very hands on. I start by taking an interest survey to see what my student is interested in and what they find easy/difficult about the subject(s) I will be teaching them. This allows me to do two things. One, see what my students enjoy and like to learn about. Two, it tells me what their confidence level in the subject at hand, and what they may need to work on.
i had trouble has a child with reading and hated books now with a BA in English i want to help someone else. I want to encourage and give confidence. I will apply my lessons from long ago. Or even enrich my own set of learning skills.
I am a retired teacher/case manager and a Grandma. My grandchildren are the light of my life and I have always loved working with children. I enjoy camping, traveling, movies, reading, cooking, baking and most of all, my family. I Graduated from WSU River Falls with a Bachelor of Science degree (elementary ed. major and music minor).
I try to tailor my lessons to best fit students' individual learning styles, strengths, and interests. I like to work collaboratively with students and their families to ensure our lessons best reflect the students' needs with classwork, homework and tests.
I shape my teaching methods to each child, since every child is unique! I tutor elementary to middle school students, specializing in teaching ADHD and Autistic kids. I use techniques such as engaging in the child's interests and highlighting their strengths in order to improve the areas they need help in.
I am a college student who is a special educations Para professional ,and I am trained in helping students of all kinds . I'm working on becoming a special education teacher I am also working in becoming a ESLand ABE .
I teach each class with a multi-disciplinary and a multi-sensory approach to ensure all learners and learning types receive an appropriate lesson for maximum understanding. I have a structured approach in my lessons while maintaining the flexibility to capture unplanned teaching moments.
My teaching style demonstrates dedication to fostering a positive learning environment and maximizing individual student performance. I teach according to the learning style of the student, and I will incorporate other teaching styles to expand on the style of learning.
My teaching methodology focuses on collaboration, strategic planning and intentional goal setting. Parents and students are my greatest partners in an academic relationship. When reviewing IEPs, school agendas and family goals, I want to ensure buy in from all stakeholders and develop tutoring strategies that promote life-long learning and skill replication for the student within the classroom.
My teaching method is highly adaptable, because no two kids learn the same way. This is especially true of kids with disabilities. I like to take time to get to know kids and figure out what helps them to best comprehend material, and then I adapt my style to best help them.
My teaching method depends on my students. I always make sure to teach to the way they learn. Some students prefer to hear a lesson, others need to see it. I go above and beyond to make sure my students "get it" and encourage all questions and comments.
My teaching methodology is finding a strategy that works for the student and then teach that individual that strategy so that they can grasp the lesson that they need to learn. My lesson structure is based on the ability of the student and what he/she can learn based on a lesson plan that will be prepared for them.
All strategies will accommodate the whole student and not just the labeled special needs. Lessons will be tailored to each individual students depending on the needs. The first lesson will establish levels of where the student is and what modalities are best suited for students.
I teaching method is trust , respect . Once I give them trust in their own ability to learn then they would make their own progress. I like using s reward point system with a timer.
I like being a hands-on teacher. I believe students learn more when they're having fun. They also tend to remember the lesson if they are active in the lesson. I also like to use the I do, we do, you do method. Where I show them how to do a problem, we try together, then they try on there own.
My teaching method is to find a way in to the subject that is interesting to each student I teach. I use a variety of teaching techniques until I find the one that works the best with each individual student.
I believe that all children can learn and have the right to learn. We as educators can not just quit because it gets hard. We must remember that their future is in our hands and we were given these children to educate, just like we give our own children to their teacher to educate them so that they can become successful members of society.
I am a middle school English language arts instructor with twenty-one years of teaching experience. Endorsed in 7-12 English, I provide reading, grammar, and writing instruction to a diverse student population (honors, traditional, special needs, etc.). My approach to reading varies by the type of student that I am servicing.
My teaching Methods are based on the students needs and what where the student is lacking, I teach grades K-5-Reading and Language Arts are my focus, but can teach other subjects. I look the students Weak points and bring them on grade level and/or above.
Special Needs students learn uniquely. I differentiate lessons based on student needs. I observe students academic performance and then modify/adjust the lessons based on the data.
I approach each topic based on each child's understandings. I like to assess a child, and see what he/she is capable of doing. I like to teach instead of just giving a child the answer.
I'm very energetic and have a way of adding humor and excitement into my teaching! Practice till we're perfect is definitely something I stand by.
