Exceptional Numeracy Teacher
Numeracy is the ability, confidence and willingness to engage with quantitative and spatial information to make informed decisions in all aspects of daily living. A numerate individual has the confidence and awareness to know when and how to apply quantitative and spatial understandings at home, at school, at work or in the community.
Quantitative information also refers to information that can be measured and expressed as an amount. This includes: having a sense of the magnitude of numbers, using numbers in real-life situations, estimating amounts, interpreting statistical information, recognizing patterns, determining probability.
Employing numeracy in the subject areas has the dual effect of enriching students’ understanding of the subject area content and of increasing their numeracy skills. For students to develop breadth and depth in their numeracy skills, they must experience numeracy across all their subject/discipline areas. To become numerate, students need to recognize quantitative or spatial information within situations and use numeracy skills within the context where it exists.
Numeracy helps children with the following: understand and use small and large numbers, interpret or represent information in graphs and charts, understand and manage time, visualize how objects are positioned within a space, estimate distances, etc.
I endeavor to render an individual-based style of tutoring. It is geared around a recognition that ability, circumstances and character differ from student to student.
My approach and strategies may sometimes vary, but the constant in my tutoring is a sympathetic, calm but challenging manner. My tutoring process aims at instilling confidence, both in the subjects I am working on with a student, and also in their general educational and personal development.
The aim of my approach is not just to tick boxes on a syllabus or repair specific faults, though both are often necessary components of my work: I set out to not only teach my students but to also work with them.
My relationships with some of my teachers whilst I was at school, formed a significant role in my own personal development. I developed a rapport with my teachers and tutors, and this helped me to progress educationally, cultivate various skills and map out my future.
It is with a similar temperament that I approach one-to-one professional tutoring.
I have gathered teaching experience from several primary schools where I have taught on a part-time basis.
In recent years, my teaching techniques have proven to create active participation and notable progress in the performance of my students.
