Information About James - Colchester teacher
This is how 2 referees rated James:
I studied BSc. (Hons) History and Philosophy at UCL (graduated 2006 with 1st). I then completed an MSc. in Philosophy and Public Policy at the LSE (graduated 2007). From there I pursued my Graduate Diploma in Law and my Legal Practice Course at the College of Law in London. I will qualify as a corporate solicitor in September 2012.
I had two students who were studying GCSE maths. I helped them achieve an A* in there exams (2010).
One of the most important approaches to successful teaching is having the utmost belief and confidence in every individual. In order to realise that, I try my best to promote growth by employing creativity, stressing the importance of education as well as giving my students the freedom to think. Education and learning is a personal experience and everybody learns in a different manner. The trick is to engage in the right way or help a student discover a way of interacting with a particular material. Moreover, I also appreciate that each different individual carries different ideas, opinions, criticisms and suggestions, therefore these should be taken into consideration.
As a teacher, I will always try to create a comfortable learning environment. In order to achieve that, I must build strong rapport with my students so that all of us can learn in a conducive and fun environment. Likewise, communication is apparently an important key to an effective teaching and learning process in the academic setting.
My students are my main priority and I am aware that each of them has different level of proficiency / knowledge. I believe that by creating a student-centred learning, my students will be able to take charge of their own learning with little assistance from the teacher. This will inculcate a sense of responsibility in them in terms of achieving their learning goal. As a teacher, one of my roles would be to coach and facilitate them throughout the learning process by providing information and giving useful guidelines in order for them to achieve their learning target.
