Every student is unique in his or her approach to learning. I strongly believe it is important to embrace such individuality, tailoring my own approach and teaching techniques to each of my student's specific needs, whilst drawing out the full potential of this uniqueness.
I think that all my students have the ability to be a very different model student.
My name is Paul. I am a graduate of Mechanical Engineering from the Federal University of Technology.
I have six years experience teaching Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. I have also worked as a full time Secondary School teacher and privately tutored a large number of students over the years. Through this vast knowledge, i have found that each student learns and develops in diverse ways and progresses at different rates.
I always want to understand as much as possible about the background of my students, their difficulties, behavior, strengths and weaknesses. I consider myself a patient, enthusiastic teacher, who likes to use different learning strategies to encourage and draw out the best in my students.
Teaching has been the most rewarding experience; it allows me to impart some of my love for learning and gives me the satisfaction of helping and guiding my students to discover their own abilities and the confidence to do the work.
I don't patronize my students, as i found that having a good relationship and enjoying our time together, helps the work process and builds confidence. I like to discuss a subject beyond the set syllabus and imbue my students with the desire to discover further.
The syllabus can be dull and confining - i believe it is important to show how much more there is out there to learn and enjoy.
