Methodology

My teaching method always interactive and child center. It depends on the children's age and understanding. I would like to direct children and provide the opportunity to experiential learning with proper guidance. Before starting the lesson I will try to undersdand the child's level of knowledge of the particular area by asking questions relevant to the lesson and giving some questions to solve. Then supporting, directing, guiding and instructing the child to obtain further acknowledged and understanding.
