Former Engineer and qualified, registered (provisionally) teacher offering maths lessons in Auckland

Methodology

- Teach rules/theory first followed by a basic example.
- Then it is student's turn to try out different question which is slightly more complex. He/she is working on his/her own for next five minutes, then with some working only he/she can ask for help.
- I am to check the working, which is a dashboard of his subject knowledge. Based on this I make my next lesson plans.
- I use teacher's aids such as models such as in the following video, to explain certain questions, which cannot be done so on the board.
- Student gets lots of positive feedback during this course. Always motivated. Hears lots of positive words.
- Closer to assessments, I will be available 24X7 on the phone, video or e-mail.

TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

I envisage every classroom as a unique learning community. My first task is always to build effective relationships with students in order to understand their ability levels and to support them in their learning journeys. My pedagogy is based on identifying gaps in knowledge and misconstrued attitudes towards mathematics so that I can encourage students to enjoy their studies. I also encourage peer-mentoring to build-up confidence levels and leadership skills.
