"Children have the most creative mindset, interest, variety of views and new ideas. Different approaches and methods are the keys to create the room for students to express their thoughts and ideas freely; in order to satisfy the students' learning needs. I emphasize the importance of identifying the student learning character, building a trust between tutor and student to communicate effectively, optimizing the learning skills/techniques and customized the learning materials for individual needs. I also encourage more interactive discussion and solutions sharing session among the class to promote collective learning atmosphere."
"I believe that all children are unique and have something special that they can bring to their own education. I will assess the learning style of each and every student so that I can help them to achieve the best they can. I will present a curriculum that will incorporate each different learning style, as well as make the content relevant to students' lives. I will incorporate hands-on learning, cooperative learning, projects, themes, and individual work that engage and activate students learning."
"I recognize that in order for students to excel in their studies, I need to build strong rapport and confidence with my students. Therefore, engaging in meaningful conversations and in turn instill and inherent interest in students in the respective subjects and adopting a progressive teaching model which ensures that my students have build solid foundations first before moving on to questions that requires higher level of critical thinking & problem solving skills.
I believe that every student has the ability to reach for greater heights and is more than willing to unleash that potential in every child."
"I believe that making mistakes is the first step to effective learning. Therefore, I encourage students to be brave in expressing themselves. Every language has its own set of vocabulary, structure and rules.
To effectively learn a language is to speak and apply it as a form of good practice. At the end of the day, I wish students can see their improvement in the lessons by demonstrating the use of language with confidence."
"I believe that a teacher is morally obligated to enter the classroom with only the highest of expectations for each and every one of my students. Thus, I maximize the positive benefits that naturally come along with any self-fulfilling prophecy. With dedication, perseverance, and hard work, the students will rise to the occasion."
"My teaching philosophy is anchored in enhancing self-esteem and individual independence in a student. This will stimulate an attitude towards life-long learning. Opportunities are present for each student to express personal thoughts and defend beliefs. While top grades are ideal, my personal satisfaction is rooted in each student achieving the "most improved learner" status."
"As an art educator, I care deeply about children's mental health and interest in arts. My philosophy of teaching is anchored by a personal goal to consistently improve and evolving my pedagogy through mentorship, acting as a guide while also being a listener, and leading as a role model in the classroom.
I have developed a teaching practice focused on pushing my students to be a quick creative thinker. I do this by mentoring their abilities in their art process and guide them throughout the identification and pursuit of their motivations."
"It is important to engage each student in the best way one can by drawing on their preferences, experiences and responsiveness. Teaching and learning work hand in hand, regular communication and checkpointing keeps teaching efficient and learning fresh. This allows fine-tuning of teaching methods to fill technical gaps which can subsequently fulfil the broader academic milestones expected of students."
"My role as a teacher will be to assist each child in developing their own potential and learning styles. I aim to bring an open mind, a positive attitude, and high expectations to the classroom each day. I also make the content relevant to the students' lives. I always ensure students have access to ample hands-on activities.
Every student is able to attain greater heights. With sheer determination, motivation, hard work, and consistency, students can surely excel."
"I always value the abilities to be adaptable, in many different situations we face in life, especially when it comes to tutoring. To be adaptable is to be able to empathize and understand the needs of my students from their perspectives. This enables me to constantly self-reflect and improve on my teaching methods and ensure that the approaches I use can best cater to my students needs and learning abilities, inspiring them to achieve their fullest potential."
"I make mathematics more relatable to students. When students can apply mathematical concepts to their daily lives, they will be more invested and interested in the topics, which makes the subject more meaningful. I aim for my students to have quick muscle memory when doing their worksheets and examinations; rapid recognition of concepts, solutions and application. I am willing to go extra mile - giving my students additional resources and time to guide them to be the best student they can be."
