My teaching method is interactive and experimental. As soon as I hand hold the students to a comfort level around me, I start working on their confidence to perform the given tasks independently. I am compassionate yet firm in an effort to build an air of friendliness. I would rather be a facilitator rather than an instructor.
A teacher of writing and literacy needs to know each student's competencies. I use the Socratic approach, encouraging both answers and questions. The student's age, literacy level, education, occupation and goals determine the beginning. Depending on class size and duration, concepts involving structure, theme, planning, plot, character development, designing your essay.
I enjoy working based on individual strengths and areas for growth. I focus on work that is relevant to the specific course work of each student. I like to relate the lessons to current events.
I use somewhat interactive methods to encourage students to engage in the lesson materials. This can include anything from hands-on activities, live readings, games, and video presentations. I will also have students work on developing their inner voice through the write-up of reflective pieces, poetry and other artistic development projects.
My teaching methods are interactive. My classes do not offer ready answers. My methodology consists in inciting critical thinking and intellectual discussions. I create personalized strategies following the student's needs and expectations. My role is guiding students through their own learning process.
If you're looking to better your English speaking skills (including the likes of pronunciation, enunciation, grammar, sentence structure, and even spelling if need be) by engaging in thought-provoking and interesting conversations, then look no further. Our meetings will consist of conversation. It is the most effective, and my personal favorite, way to teach.
I understand that everyone learns differently, and I adapt to each student's needs accordingly. If a student needs more time learning a certain concept, I make sure to spend extra time on that concept with them to ensure they understand and can then move forward in their learning with confidence.
Simplify grammar and use questions instead of abstract explanations to become proficient in its use. One on one instruction allows students to progress at their own speed. As a professional writer/journalist writing instruction is assisted by my experience. An easy method to teach grammar was accomplished by simplifying the process, using questions instead of explanations wherever possible.
I prefer to teach one-on-one. Having planned and conducted tutorials for groups of 20-25, I find that doing face-to-face work lets me understand my students' needs in a much more efficient manner. I also prefer to work via Skype/online, mostly due to travel constraints, though I'd be willing to negotiate this based on transport/distance. My classes are quite structured, but not rigid.
I believe that students need to be excited by their learning. If there is something that they are not enjoying I believe that there is always a way to make learning exciting. Learning and school should be fun, exciting and should meet the student's needs.
My teaching methodology is to engage the student into the lesson. Starting off with a flexible schedule in order for the students to build trust and gain confidence with the tutor. I often use real life examples during lessons, in order to maximize an engaging lesson. I enable student to bring past work from schools, so the lessons can reflect the school lessons.
I follow the Montessori pedagogy in fostering independence which can be used for both children and adults. I have a calm approach to teaching that includes giving students time to think and explore their options through the lessons. I am extremely organised and find it easy to create lesson plans and long term educational goals to reach throughout classes.
When I was an undergrad I found it hard to study and relay information, until I went to an empty lecture hall, and just started teaching what I was studying. Memory consolidation works best when you learn in your words.
My methodology is fun and easy to follow and my classes are student-centered, engaging and interactive. I use various technological aids to help make my lessons easy to follow and work at student's pace to help them build strong foundations in English Language.
I tailor all my classes to the learners I work with. I have experience using behavior modification to get the most from all my students. I use a lot of hand on material in all of my sessions.
My name is Chelsea Caeiro and I am an Occasional Teacher in both Hamilton and Halton District School Board.
I have wanted to be a teacher from the moment that I entered junior kindergarten at 3 ½ years old; the well-used chalkboard hanging on the wall of my childhood bedroom will attest to that. From the moment I was old enough to, I volunteered myself for as many opportunities to work with children as I could.
I base my tutoring sessions on the needs of the specific student. I like to have a discussion with both the parents and the child in order to gain more insight on those specific academic needs. I like to build a positive and fun relationship with my students based on mutual respect and a positive attitude toward learning.
My teaching philosophy hinges on the individual student's needs. Every youth has their own unique way of learning. It's not about how smart they are, but how they are smart. With that in mind I focus on skill building, and teaching ways of thinking and questioning. From there I scaffold knowledge and understanding, building on previous lessons.
As someone who strives to be as effective of a teacher as I can be in the future, I have developed a style of teaching that takes into consideration the strengths and weaknesses of the students I am am working with. I ensure that any student I work with is dealt with fairly and companionably, and structure all my lessons in a way that will ensure I can get the best out of anyone I am working with.
I tailor learning to meet individual student's needs. First I gather as much information about a student as possible, using records, testing, interviews, portfolio statements, parent information and behaviour/work habits checklists and anecdotals.
I use a very practical methodology, trying to make the learning of the language entertaining, combining the study with conversation, cinema, literature and also teaching drama and poetry in English. I can teach you how write dialogues and set up a play. I like to be close and friendly with my students.
I believe I can really help you, with my experience, my University English Degree and my Principal Certification, by working one on one or in small groups, I can foster creative, risk taking curriculum advancement opportunities. Through dedication, humour, repetition and hard work, I can help any student improve their written and spoken English language.
I am a university student interested in learning behaviours in young populations, with expertise in English grammar, poetry and prose analysis, reading and creative writing. I am trilingual and currently learning a fourth language, and hold regional as well as national-level achievements in English in my home country.
My main goal as a tutor is to help students stay on topic with their writing and to prepare them for post-secondary expectations. However, writing styles vary per individual and I want to help students develop their own style. Classes will consist of learning essay structure, creative writing, reading comprehension and thesis development.
I model a four–directional approach to education, within my learning environments . Modelling a four directional approach to learning allows students to experience achievement, one on one academic support, comfort and safety while attending tutoring sessions. I offer tutoring flexibility and structure. As I am a supply teacher, I am able to offer tutoring services from 5:00-9:00 pm on weekdays.
I approach my teaching methodology purely based on the Individual learning style of each student. Engagement with the students interests, creating a passion for the subject, and encouraging an interactive, hands on approach to learning have always benefited my students.
I base my classes based on the students needs. Some students need more instruction and help understanding the material, and I will find ways to help them do so. Other students need more of a sounding board to discuss things to work out a problem. I also use studying tools like flash cards, study guides and use tips and tricks that have worked for me in the past.
I approach learning dynamically based on the needs of my classroom. I love incorporating student interests into my lessons and using student perspectives on the world to scaffold learning across all subjects. My experience in theatre gives me a unique, engaging, and friendly outlook to teaching.
I use a lot of hands-on assignments. I believe the best way to learn is by doing it wrong, understanding why, and trying it again. Editing the work of others is also a great way to learn in groups, while editing your own work helps individual students learn. And above all else, a love of language and writing makes every lesson fun.
