About Jordin

I believe that the main goal of teaching is to promote learning while simultaneously creating a comfortable, yet stimulating and motivating environment that encourages the students to discuss new ideas and concepts.

In addition to creating a stimulating and comfortable learning environment, I also understand that students benefit most from dynamic teaching methods and techniques.

I will accommodate to the students using different teaching styles and methods that range from lecture based lessons, interactive discussions and kinesthetic approaches to learning.

I believe that it is important to have a structured learning routine, but at the same time, it is imperative to try a variety of approaches to the material, as a way to reach out to as many students as possible. My goal as an instructor is to emphasize diverse approaches to learning, while simultaneously working with students individually to meet their personal and academic goals.

Moreover, my teaching philosophy focuses on a collaborative learning approach. I implement a classroom and learning environment based on student input and open collaboration that contributes to the curriculum and grading criteria of the class.

In the classes that I taught at the University of Florida, I used group activities where the students not only discussed classroom topics such as homework and basic grammar concepts in French, but I also emphasize the discussion of current events in the United States and France, but also globally. My students not only discuss these topics, but also write on them.

I prefer to use activities that force the students to think critically about the world outside of the classroom and the textbook, while simultaneously using their language skills to communicate their beliefs and ideas. In extension to my teaching philosophy, I also believe that it is important to continue to learn, grow and constantly develop and strive for more as a teacher.

I believe that the students model their teacher’s learning habits and behaviors and as a result, I strive to communicate my passion and interest in the French language and culture. If the instructor does not show an interest or passion for the material and for learning, the students will be less likely to be motivated to learn and succeed. Additionally, I also make sure that I am updated and knowledgeable of the current formal learning and teaching theories, so that I am able to teach the best classes possible.
