During my years in Buenos Aires, I worked as an English teacher at the prestigious Holistic Institute of English, based in Buenos Aires. There, not only I learned how to teach but also how to do it with holistic, creative, learning activities. Moreover, I'm a music and art enthusiast and I usually include these as teaching tools.
I have 11 years experience tutoring students from High school, TAFE, 1st year university and adult bridging courses. I have achieved a double major degree in chemistry and biology, with a minor in mathematics. In order to get the best results from my students, I tailor my lessons to suit their needs.
I'm all about fun. Pencil and paper doesn't work for everyone, so I make it my challenge to find a way which engages my students and helps them to really explore the subject. No question is a silly question. Questions are key to unlocking understanding, and I aim to provide a comfortable and relaxed learning environment which encourages question asking and curiosity.
I help students to reach their potentials and provide confidence and encouragement to go further than they thought possible! I work with students weekly to achieve their personal bests and work systematically through their homework tasks and give them excercises and support for improving their skills.
I have been a math tutor for two years, having tutored children of all ages from 5 to 18. While tutoring I demonstrate tricks that often help link the missing piece of a concept. I will help with homework and then go over some extra examples to ensure that the concept fully makes sense.
Every student is unique. I base my lesson structures based on the individual needs of the student. I also implement a variety of visual aids, interesting questions, and problem-solving approaches to ensure that the student truly understands the fundamentals of a subject. I try to make my lessons as engaging and interactive as possible.
As I have progressed through the year groups of mathematics and have learned the syllabus content, I have a thorough understanding of the requirements and concepts of the course. Lessons can cover any concept you are having difficulty understanding and calculating, as well as any further clarification required on a topic.
Before the lesson, I will gain a full understanding on my student's needs and what he/she aspires to achieve. I would also have done some preparation of the particular topic involved in the tuition prior to the tuition in order for maximum efficacy. I am friendly and easy to communicate with, so students will have no problem consulting with me.
I am able to fast-track a student, ahead of the school syllabus in order to provide enough time for exam preparation or I can also assist with school homework as I am incredibly flexible with my teaching and can tailor to the student's needs. I can provide many materials for exam preparation, including past papers from many of the top NSW school and provide effective study tips and techniques.
I believe in ensuring that you have learnt the content rather than simply "teaching" the content. I can prepare you for the higher-order of thinking that is required to achieve the high end grades. This will ensure that you can comprehend the concept and be able to apply it to unfamiliar contexts instead of memorisation and regurgitation.
My teaching method is supportive of all students. I base my classes of any necessary needs the students will have. I approach a topic by asking questions to see what the students know and what needs developing to help them to succeed to the best of their ability.
I put a strong emphasis on preparation to make the most of our time. Lesson Procedure: > Email the subject areas that need work or a specific assignment that you need help understanding. > I prepare material and resources for your lesson. > We work through the problems and I email practise material to prepare for our next session.
I understand that there are various learning styles and usually spend time to get to know which environment my students learn best in. This is why I try to make sure all my classes are tailored to how each student absorbs and retains information best.
I'm an experienced Math tutor. I can really bond with students from 11-17-years old. I graduated from Mechanical Engineering and I've been tutoring students since I was a student. I'm not from Australia but don't worry, I was also an English teacher (TEFL) with international experience (The Netherlands and USA). I can teach all levels, from beginners to advanced.
I base my sessions on what the child needs wether it is help with their homework or help with areas they may be struggling with. I will plan a session to meet the needs and wants of the child and the parent.
My teaching methods are based around each students learning style and the work they are currently undertaking. I am happy to supervise homework or make up my own work sheets to provide the student with the most comprehensive understanding possible.
I believe in trial and error. If a student incorrectly believes something to be true, I try to lead him/her into a path that eventually makes him/her see that what he/she initially thought cannot be correct.
My method of teaching is very flexible. Through my private tuition I can assist my students with their school work, assignments and prepare them for their exams. I have been teaching students with mathematics for several years now so I can easily gauge their level of understanding and adapt to their learning style.
I will adapt my methodology to your expectation and level.
I used to teach my student applying a blended learning approach. I divide the tutoring hours into several small sections according to the planned tasks. In the first section of my lecture, I review the previous lesson, the second section is designed for delivering the lecture, the third section for exercise, and final is for solving the remaining problem that my student does not understand yet.
I believe that every student is different, and with some concepts being difficult to grasp, the approach to success requires flexibility. My philosophy in learning is ensuring that students understand the basics of the task at hand, which once mastered, can be followed by applying those basics to more complex problem solving.
I am very calm person and teach the learners according to their requirements. I always encourage them to ask the questions in between the class to make them understand the problems fully. I have got lot of patience for others.
My lessons and tutoring will be aimed at you. Not only what you're struggling with, but what you understand well, and how you best learn, in order to foster more thorough understanding. Something I feel is probably the most valuable about the way I teach, is I genuinely want to help you. I will take the time with you and adapt the way I am teaching to suit you.
Presenting concepts in a friendly an familiar form, I try to identify foundation elements that need to be worked on in order to build on a students understanding of a subject instead of the typical 'practice makes perfect' approach adopted by most.
My teaching method will always reflect the needs and wants of the students. I believe that studying can be enjoyable when the student is positively encouraged. Therefore, I try to make the topic content engaging and explain it to their level of understanding. A lesson with me would entail firstly gauging the extent of their knowledge by asking some trial questions.
My class is mostly based on making complicated things to understand into practical approach with examples. I also rely on giving concept based problems to make them understand better. Fortnightly short test to evaluate the understanding and regular home works are my top most priority.
Firstly, I am open to answering any questions students have at the start of the lesson. If there are not many questions, I can explain concepts that students are struggling with and provide sample questions at the end of the lesson to solidify the concept.
I am more focused about dealing with the fundamentals of a subject or a topic, because once my student(s) can understand and grasp the fundamental rudiments of a topic, it boosts their interest and also increases their confidence to approach more technical topics even on their own.
I understand the students can feel like all their content is jumbled facts which they need to remember, and then they often find themselves overwhelmed. I tackle this problem by looking at the concepts and seeing how the components all connect and helping the students understand each part separately and as a whole.
My approach to tutoring is understanding the needs of each student as every student is different.
