My teaching methodology changes depending on each student's needs. However, in general, I find it very important for students to understand the concept I am teaching, so I do focus on that in the beginning. I also strongly believe practicing, i.e. solving many exercises, is very helpful in mathematics, so I prepare many different exercises for students, ranging from easy to hard. In this way I can also easily see where they start to struggle.
I studied Liberal Arts and Sciences in Amsterdam, with a major in Mathematics. I am now a PGCE student at UCT, studying to become a high school math teacher. In high school I would tutor friends in maths, in university in Amsterdam I tutored first-year students in maths, statistics, and logic, as well as the kids I babysat who were between 8 and 10 years old. I also interned at a high school (grade 7-12) where, amongst other things, I helped students in homework sessions and taught some classes.
