An agricultural engineering graduate and past instructor of college physics. conducted tutorials in the field of algebra, trigonometry, analytic geometry, solid mensuration, calculus both differential and integral and also higher engineering subjects to fellow engineering students during university life.
My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memorise things. Nor do I do the students’ homework for them!
