Maths Phd teacher gives lessons to high school students and university students

Methodology

My name is Mike. I am experienced in teaching junior and senior mathematic subjects at public and private high school. I have always enjoyed studying mathematics. I like interacting with young people and being able to share my mathematic knowledge. I have a strong desire to expose students to different ways of thinking about the world and to appreciate the importance of mathematics in their day to day living. I am excited about the opportunity to work with a wide range of math students, helping them to achieve their goals. In addition I have been a mathematic tutor and workshop demonstrator at Queensland University of Technology for first and second year mathematics subjects over the past eight years.

I will communicate with parents before the first class. Through this communication process I will understand the learning situation and personal qualities of students. Before each class I will ascertain the students' current learning progress and problems, in order to arrange the course order and solve their problems. From guiding students through the concept, I will nature the ability of solving problem independently. From the process of understanding, I will affirms student's ability and catch up the missing concepts. Further I will provide relevant information so that student can review it after class.

I believe the use of systematic steps to guide students to solve problems hence this will increase students 'knowledge and skills, inspire students' thinking and develop problem solving strategies.
