Physics is one of those sciences that usually gets taught one of two ways - equation based or example/logic based. What throws students off is when their teacher picks or favors the method that doesn't work well for them, or the teacher goes too fast and students don't get a handle on some of the early ideas
My name is Stephen. I am a graduate of Geophysics from the Federal University of Technology Akure.
Through my five years experience teaching Further Mathematics and Physics, i discovered that children learn best when they are thoroughly engaged in the lesson, and the clear advantage of one to one lessons is that they can be tailored completely towards my students.
I believe identifying the my student`s learning style is essential, as its using my student’s interests and hobbies to create personalized resources.
I am enthusiastic and passionate about teaching and i aim to make my lessons as enjoyable and interesting as possible. My lessons are engaging and include a variety of activities and resources; students frequently use textbooks at school and therefore i try to break away from this and concentrate on finding other ways to teach.
I am sensitive to individual student needs and believe that a personalized, multi sensory, cross-curricular and dynamic lesson plan, with positive encouragement, timed and structured activities, and assessment for learning, are key for all student to succeed, as well as understand the direction of their learning moving forward.
I believe that ‘Assessment for Learning’ is a particularly crucial element to lessons as this will allow my students to understand what they need to do to improve their learning and move on to a more advanced level of thinking.
