My teaching method is based on differentiated instruction, keeping all students in mind when planning tutorials. Getting to know my students well so I can provide each one with bespoke experiences and tasks to improve their learning. Also understanding the differences and similarities among students and use this information to plan lessons. Seeing each individual student flourish is very rewarding .
