Passionate Mathematics Teacher
My teaching approach to mathematics is to find simpler methods to make complex topics less complex and easily understandable.
I find that many children run away from mathematics not because of the subject itself but probably because of the method or strategy used in teaching.
I bring fun to mathematics by using paintings, charts, toys, even edible items. Just to ensure that my lessons are not boring and my students can remember what they have been taught even after classes are over
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary
When I teach I bring a whole new light into the subjects that I teach, I have an in depth understanding Computer, Mathematics, English Language, Integrated Sciences and other disciplines.
However I think something which unifies my tutoring skills is that I always try to break down what seem like huge, daunting subjects or assignments into smaller, manageable, non-scary, fun tasks. I work closely with each child to determine the ways in which they learn best, their interests, strengths and weaknesses, and feed this back into my tutoring methods, creating a tailor-made learning experience.
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 academic subject 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 thoroughly enjoy tutoring each of the subjects I teach, and hope that I can transmit my enthusiasm and energy to my pupils.
