I am a third year university student at the University of Waterloo in the Mathematics / Teaching program where I am work passionately towards becoming a teacher.

3 years - Basketball / Sports and Games Instructor (worked with children aged 3-12 where I would come up with weekly lesson plans to work on different sets of beginner skills required for sports such as baseball, floor hockey, soccer and football and building and supervising obstacle courses.
I start with spending a certain amount of time to get to know the learning environment along with the student's best learning style.
I then spend some time reviewing the student's current lessons along with any evaluations from their school to assess their strengths and weaknesses.
I then work with the student to set SMART goals along with reviewing the Ontario Curriculum which will help me with writing lesson plans that will target these goals based on the student's strongest learning style.
I would then work with the lesson plan, adjusting it to create a more suitable plan if necessary along with providing constructive feedback often to let the student become more aware of their progress and motivate them to keep going.
If deemed necessary, at times when the student is not as interested in a topic, I work on making it more interesting by supplementing their interests into the lesson plan. As an example, while I was working on math with a peer, I noticed their lack of interest in a chapter and to help encourage them, I created a set of math questions based on baseball which was his favourite sport.
