Experience: 5 years
I can describe myself as friendly, enthusiastic and respectful. As a teacher, we can easily get respect from the students if they would feel respected first.
As I have completed my bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering, I have an extensive knowledge in mathematics and physics. This knowledge allows me to confidently explain concepts and processes to students. This confidence boosts my credibility and helps students trust in my ability to teach them what they need to know.
Students learn in different ways, and as a good math teacher I understand that. I keep up with the best practices in math education and regularly incorporates them into my instruction to help all of my students learn. I also understand there may be multiple ways to solve problems and uses those alternate strategies to help struggling students grasp difficult concepts. My lesson plans engage students and help them feel confident in their mathematical abilities.
In classroom, i serves as a facilitator of learning, providing students with the knowledge and tools to solve problems and then encouraging students to solve them on their own. When students answer a problem incorrectly, I do not allow them to quit. I encourage students to figure out where they went wrong and to keep working at the problem until they get the correct answer, providing support and guidance where needed.
