Passionate Science Teacher
Science is life! The incorporation of Science into the curriculum of children affords them opportunities for to develop understandings and skills necessary to function productively as problem-solvers in a scientific and technological world.
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary
Being a versatile individual, I have had the opportunity to teach students who functioned below-, on-, and above grade level. I have been successful at accommodating diverse student needs by facilitating all styles of learners, offering individualized and extracurricular support . I utilize weekly quizzes and monthly tests to track student progress, locate areas of weakness, and prepare students for finals exams.
My methods are, of course, also informed by a thorough understanding of assessment requirements and criteria both for school entrance examinations and public examinations. I believe that a positive and confident attitude towards the various academic subjects being studied can be hugely beneficial in terms of results, and I try to engender this by providing a supportive yet challenging relationship and environment for study.
I think the most important quality in any tutor is patience. My first step is to perform an assessment of the student; this, along with a comparison of the student's academic goals, forms the basis of our lesson plan. I listen closely to the family's goals in order to tailor my approach specifically to that student.
