Information About Anshuma - Lower Hutt tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Anshuma:
I am a 39 year old female with 2 children; son is first year engineering student at Auckland Uni and daughter is a year 8 student. I am passionate about maths and reading. Currently completing my Masters in Education with Mathematics Endorsement.
I have been in the teaching field for the past 14 years. Currently working as an associate principal at a primary school for the past 2 years. I have worked as a maths facilitator at Massey University in 2016 which allowed me to work in at least 26 different primary schools to mentor teachers teaching mathematics. I have experienced teaching at the different year levels and have taught specialist maths classes with students who need support in maths and students who are gifted and talented in maths.
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. My aim is to:
*build on what a student already knows
*compare concepts with other concepts
*help distinguish concepts from other concepts
*connect the material to students' personal experience and
*help apply concepts to new situations or problems with lots of examples
My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves.
