About Wemi


Bio

My philosophy of education simply put is to listen attentively and encourage active shared learning between myself and the student. Far beyond teaching the basic skills necessary to succeed in any content area, I believe in fostering self confidence and creative, logical thinking. Problem solving and metacognitive learning (a person's understanding how he or she learns) are very important abilities that I impart to every student I teach.

I enjoy getting to know my students' interests,...

My philosophy of education simply put is to listen attentively and encourage active shared learning between myself and the student. Far beyond teaching the basic skills necessary to succeed in any content area, I believe in fostering self confidence and creative, logical thinking. Problem solving and metacognitive learning (a person's understanding how he or she learns) are very important abilities that I impart to every student I teach.

I enjoy getting to know my students' interests, hobbies, favorite/least favorite subjects and talents. Teaching a child or adult from a perspective of their strengths goes a long way in encouraging risk taking in their education. Making "mistakes" or arriving at the "wrong answer" are part of the learning process and are valuable to honing one's academic skills and critical thinking.

Having taught all pre-collegiate grades for several years, I am always amazed at the new ways in which students learn and motivate themselves. I have extensively taught English and reading comprehension, phonics, all levels of Math, Science, Reading Fluency and life skills. Some examples are time management, goal setting, note-taking and organization.

Education is a life-long learning process which is best achieved by everyone working together cooperatively - teacher, parent and student. We each have our part and a similar goal, the development of a well-rounded, confident and academically brilliant student and human being.

Subjects

History

Bible Studies

Bible Studies

I have attended Bible Study classes the majority of my life. As an adult, I have engaged in discussions, real-life applications and inspired other pupils with my understanding. Consistent reading and sending encouraging words and verses to meet people's need are a practical application. I teach character traits and concepts to help students to gain a deeper, personal understanding that comes from the text. Students focus on putting the application into action, which is a skill they will need for the rest of their lives.
