Being a private teacher I work to develop in my students a thorough recognition and confidence in answering test questions and managing to deal with unknown situations. My approach is actually based on the opinion that learning happens in an environment of mutual trust where the scholar is supported to think and establish new links for themselves. According to my experience personal lesson has a special usefulness to learners due to the option to break down the students' particular restraints to study in a way that lays the roots for a long-term and thorough comprehension of the material.
My approach differs depending on the scholar's needs and learning style. However, my teaching approach is built upon motivating children to think on their own, operating real-world situations whenever possible. |My opinion is that it is very important to provide scholars with a working skills and to give them analytical abilities for improving upon this knowledge. Directing anyone to think analytically is at the core of what exactly a student have to withdraw off any subject course.
The most important contribution
Training students is one of the most lasting contributions a teacher can bring in, and it is a process, that I find fun and beneficial. From my practice, I learned the effect of involving students with the help of patterns and of pitching data at a level which assumes comprehension but not necessarily knowledge, mixing the unknown with the known as a mix which gives the scholar the sensation of probability instead of that one of impossibility that formal and impressive approaches may enforce.
My teaching tricks
I begin with themes the scholars are good with and proceed regularly towards more challenging parts as long as their confidence is being raised. I apply examples and questions to make sure perceiving permanently. I never lecture to learners or request them to remember information. Nor do I do the students' assignments for them!
I usually concentrate on test-style or prior paper questions in order to confirm, exercise and perfect the learner's grasping and practice. I additionally give a lot of importance to some of the less obvious but essential abilities like logical thought, essay structure and technique, and the useful use of graphs and numbers.
