This is how 2 referees rated Tsz:
You may have seen me on the TV. I was selected to do a Get Into Teaching advert 2017.
I am a qualified maths teacher in a top 2% outstanding secondary school in Stevenage.
I have got Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) at the University of Southampton.
I have four years' teaching experience in secondary schools and Sixth Form College.
I had a tutee last year. He got a grade 8.
My philosophy is to focus more on conceptual knowledge than procedural knowledge. In other words, I always start to teach understanding before moving on to mathematical procedures to answer questions.
In my lesson plan, I use David Kolb's Experiential Learning Model (ELM) which breaks down the learning process using a 4-step model. It encourages the pupils to solve problems themselves under the guidance of the tutor. As a result, they will have a long-term memory because they understand it and find the solutions themselves.
I use the model of Bloom's Taxonomy to improve pupils' thinking skill also. It helps pupils have a full understanding of mathematical concepts instead of memorising lots of procedures to answer questions.
In order to consolidate the understanding, I would use past papers to let pupils be familiar with different question formats. As a teacher, it is very important to teach pupils exam techniques in order to maximum the marks they can get in the exam.
