My name is Tsihugwa, which can be a tongue twister so friends call me Zee and students call me Mr. Zee. I have been a teacher/tutor for almost 28 years having first taught musical instruments in 1984. I graduated with Bachelor of Science in Physics in 1986 and a Master of Arts in Communication in 2001. I have taught high school, community college, and am currently on the online faculty at the University of Phoenix. In December 2010, I published my first novel entitled Son of the Oracle.
I believe my greatest teaching skill is the ability to discern where students are in relation to subject matter and identify problem areas. I am then able to work with them to bring them up to where they are supposed to be. Generally, I do not tell the students what to do. I challenge the students to realize what they are doing if it is different from what they should be doing. I then give them pointers and guidance on what they should be doing, and help put them on the right track. In this they are actively involved in learning and problem solving process, and they, therefore, learn more effectively.
I am easygoing, yet firm because I believe the primary objective of the student coming to me is to learn and this should be a painless yet fruitful, even fun venture!
