Janice’s Answer

Making that teachable moment real and exciting is key. I agree, don't just read or teach from a book - it would be helpful to find something tangible that they can touch and feel for engagement. I learn by doing...whether that is me writing the information down after it has been said (tends to stick with me longer) or if I am the one that gets on the computer and walks through the steps to run a report or create a plan. Doing and repetition would be my preference.

Amanda’s Answer

Dear Prerna,
I am not a teacher but manager of other people. I do occasional teach a project management class. Key is to keep them interested and attentive. How does one do that? What I do sometimes is to start with a question right up front and ask the class to be engaging to answer that question. Along the way I throw out more questions here and there. Additionally, mix it with stories and I call them anchors. These stories that tie to your concepts can help a student learn and recall information much better. Stories that have meaning that hits an emotional cord are best because people will remember those the most.

If possible that's what I would suggest doing.

Best wishes.

Prerna’s Answer

Hi ,

I have been taking private tuitions for School kids for almost 8 years now.

Mine is a very simple strategy, I've observed humans learn and learn fast when they enjoy something or when they can relate to something.

I make sure whatever I teach I don't just read it out of the books , but I somehow try to give them real life examples about it, and by real life I mean examples from the student's own life. So that they can relate the concept easily. For this reason I also take out the time to personally know the student better. This way they open up to me and they I am also someone they can talk to anytime for anything.

I never try to scare or punish my students. A punishment for my student would be an hour extra with me which doesn't involve studying.

There are a few things which just needs to be remembered or mugged up. For such topics , I suggest using Abbreviations if it's a formula or set of items. Otherwise writing something again and again helps a lot too.

Hope these help you. :)

Michelle’s Answer

I like to start with the end in mind. I look at what is the ultimate concept I want my students to know. Then, we would do an informal "pre assessment" so I would know where each student is. Based on that information, I'd break them into groups, and after whole group instruction, then setting up small groups to work with during the remainder of the lesson time.

Hands on learning for all subjects was key. Just being aware of how each student learns, and making sure are reaching each one.
