Lesson

Excellent Science Teacher

Science is a very interesting subject to children and children are highly inquisitive in nature. I make use of different materials to ensure I make the subject highly simple to my students.I make sure that we regularly revisit what we've learnt in previous weeks. Recapping our progress at the beginning of each lesson means that new-found knowledge sticks in my student's long-term memory. They'll be well-prepared when exam time comes around!

About

FAVORITE

In my teaching process, I welcome the focus on the individual learner that is a central feature of tutoring, and I enjoy engaging in the lively dialogue and individualized feedback that enables tutees to grow in confidence as learners. I make sure to bring enthusiasm and energy to my tutoring. Thanks to my work as a school teacher, my approach to tutoring is also informed, where relevant, by a sound understanding of the assessment requirements for public examinations and school entrance examinations.

I make sure to apply a structured and detailed approach in order to instill confidence in my students and help develop their skills. I have learnt to be adaptable, flexible and dynamic in order to meet the individual needs of each student, and having taught a wide range of ages and abilities across the spectrum.

I understand the importance of employing different learning styles and strategies in order to maximize each student's full potential.
