My TEACHING PHILOSOPHY
Since I was a little boy, I had a passion for mathematics. In elementary and junior high schools, math was fun for me. In high school and in university, math and physics became more difficult and I enjoyed the challenge. I remember sharing my knowledge with others. The passion I had and the desire to share what I know with others have guided me to love teaching profession.
While I was a 3rd-year university student, I became a mathematics tutor to freshmen students. Throughout my student life, I got the opportunity to interact with students and the insight I gained in how students learn have helped me understand where students got stuck in understanding the concept or the idea of a given topic.
From my experience, I understood most student’s belief is that:
- Math is difficult
- Math is not interesting, and
- Math is irrelevant.
It’s from these three points mentioned above that my teaching philosophy is rooted. The philosophy of making Math fun, making it interesting, and relevant requires to be a passionate teacher, and I’m a super passionate teacher
Math is not always easy; however, when delivered in the right way, there is no fun more than playing with it.
In addition to a teaching career, I have a desire to helping people understand how this fast-growing Information Technology (IT) industry and its application can change their lives. I am convinced that IT is one of those areas that needs an individual’s creativity and skill in solving big and complicated problems in large and small sectors.
