Teaching Philosophy

My main objective in teaching is that the student should be able to know the information well enough so that they can teach it themselves. While I have only been an official course assistant for two years, I have been tutoring all-aged students for seven years. I have taught this long for two main reasons. The first is so that I can contribute to the intellectual growth of other students and second is that it helps me learn new perspectives about the material. This is especially important now as I have large classes with many different kinds of students.

My teaching style is very kinesthetic. I believe that lecturing makes it very difficult for students to focus, thus I like to use examples and worksheets. This makes it especially easy for students, especially shy ones, to ask questions one-on-one. I know my method has been useful when these students can answer questions that require more out-of-the box thinking. This is how I know that my teaching style has been successful.
