First and foremost, teaching is based on 3 pillars – (Introduction), ) Understanding), and ) co-operative and compassionate human).

  • Introduction – first, I must get to know my students – their strengths, weaknesses, likes, dislikes, family background– as best I can, so that I may help them to grow, tolerate their weakness, and empower their strength.
  • Understanding – I believe in making learning relevant to my students. This entails tailoring and adapting the curriculum to their current social circumstances as well as cultural backgrounds.
  • Co-operative and compassionate human beings – the ultimate objective of teaching and learning is to develop compassionate human beings, who care for one other, care and love their fellow friends as much as they care and love themselves.

The new insight that I’ve acquired is that there are certain teaching approaches that I have found to be useful and effective in my teaching and learning experiences. I have seen that students learn and absorb new topics better using graphical pictorial examples, metaphors than simply audio visual cues. in addition, I have found that explanations are considerably more powerful when related to a real-life physical example. Applying the concepts to applications allow students to be able to correlate the importance of academic knowledge for solving real-world problems. Moreover, I consider conceptual learning to be more valuable than just memorizing. Hands-on experience and collaborative discussions, in my view, play an essential part in the learning process. furthermore,I prefer to emphasize active learning by immersing students in small-scale and long-term projects. This will develop critical thinking, problem-solving, time management, and an inquisitive curiosity among students in coming up with innovative solutions.
