Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Every child is gifted with some creativity. Expressing these God-given gifts is what differs from person to person. As a teacher, I consider it my duty to help my students recognise their abilities and use it to the fullest of their potential. I am certain a person can succeed better in what he/she is good at than something he/she is not. After all, all a person has to do is to improve on something he already has than try to develop something he is not good at. If a person doesnt use his resources to his potential, it would be like sitting on a gold mine with no shovels. Hence, I modify my teaching methods and add a lot of skits and dramas to encourage the orators, at the same time giving points for the background, sound effects etc. so the artists and architects of the class can express and develop themselves.
I believe that a good teacher should awaken the sense of curiosity in students and make it an abiding trait in them throughout their lives. I strongly feel that real satisfaction is achieved only when a student is able to ponder What? How? Why? When? Whom? Etc. and come out with the answer himself. After all, Sir Newton and Edison are today recognised and appreciated only because they found answers to their whys, whats and hows. I feel it is the teachers duty to wait patiently for the student to understand what is being taught and ponder about it to understand the subject better. In fact, whenever time permits I often encourage students to come out with more than one way of solving a problem. Learning is a lifelong affair and making the students aware of this is one of the important functions of a teacher.

Awards I have been home tutoring for many years and my students have been toppers. The recent student was one who was finding very great difficulty in getting passing marks in her natural and physical sciences, whom I tutored. The student secured 90% in the board examination Karnataka, India.

Presently a child who was very weak in Math, Science, English and Social sciences has topped the class in his VII grade. He came to me to get guidance to do a retest to get promoted to VII grade during the vacation.
