My philosophy of learning is that if you can connect to a learner you can teach the learner. I have a proven record of uniquely applying the differential teaching technique to ensure that students who are presumed to have a phobia for Mathematics overcome it with ease. My ability to easily connect to learners of diverse abilities have been highly commended.
When I teach slow learners, I try to view them not as slow learners but high flyers whose foundation in mathematics are not strong or as learners who may have forgotten some prerequisite or foundational topics. Topics in mathematics are sequentially linked like in other subject. A few hours review of a prerequisite topic would boost the learner's understanding, ability then confidence.
My knowledge of practical computing (Java ,C++, PHP and website design) enable me to connect each lesson with real life applications. Teenagers learn better when lessons are linked to real life scenarios. My students have always excelled in BECE, External competitions and Cambridge Checkpoint exams.
My ability to teach practical computing makes my students want to learn some more even after each lesson. If a child discovers that he can make something out of the computer, working with computers becomes something he looks forward to.
In this high tech era, teaching of STEM has gone beyond the regular teaching for knowledge to teaching for understanding and skill. When a leaner have knowledge of an idea by mere hearing or seeing, he tends to forget after sometime but when a learner participates in verifying or establishing a concept practically, he understands it and he may never forget.
Each of my lessons is aimed at practically establishing or verifying one idea or the other. This why my students rarely forget the concepts I teach.
