About Rashmi

Students are the nation builders, they're the future generation. So it is the duty of the nation builders, the teachers to acquaint them with the knowledge that will not only help in making them competent and learned only but also good human beings. In India, I joined this profession in 1995, since then I have been teaching the children of primary grades, i.e. classes 3 to 6.

I always tried to make my teaching interactive by using various participatory activities for the children. Smart class modules and e-book also helped in making teaching interesting and effective. I always tried to teach from known to unknown activities and by relating the content to the real life applications. Children were always motivated by providing them with positive reinforcement so that they could find out and develop their innate qualities.

Orientation was always done of the high achievers and remedial classes were given to the slow learners. A lot of challenges were also faced while teaching but it is truly said that learning is as good as absent if does not provide challenges. So I always tried to bring my teaching to the understanding level of the children so that they understood well. I always attended various seminars and workshops to improve my teaching skills and learn new and diverse teaching strategies. I was a member of many important committees of the school and various good suggestions for the better functioning of the institution.

I had been awarded the BEST TEACHER award in 2011 and also worked as the coordinator of the primary classes for 2 years. Shaping the future of the young minds of today's generation in a right way and teaching them the valuable life skills was the main motive of my teaching that I loved most about this profession and seeing children becoming the educated, learned, well behaved, risen in their lives was the greatest achievement of my profession.

Hindi and Punjabi are my mother tongues and I have studied them till high school. I have taught these subjects in the beginning of my carrier as a teacher to primary classes. I would love to teach these subjects now to the children who do not basically belong to India but the roots of their families are still there and they want their children to be efficient in these subjects also.

When you relate your teaching to the real life examples and situations, it becomes easier for the children to understand the content well and it goes in their long lasting memory. I always used known to unknown techniques and previous knowledge testing of the students to make them prepare for the next tougher level of learning. Even teaching from smart class modules, pictures and live examples also made it impressive. Various participatory, interactive, communicative activities were held time to time to arouse the interest of children in the subject activities were also conducted to increase the creativity and critical thinking of the children.

I' ll try to disseminate maximum knowledge in the given limited time period as my lessons will all be preplanned and the quality time will be utilized in the teaching - learning process. I think, I will be able to utilize my vast teaching experience in teaching all the skills required related to the subjects in the best possible way.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Biology

It was also one of my favorite subjects while completing my high school and bachelor's degree. I had great interest in understanding the working and functioning of the plants and the animals. I also loved doing the experimental and practical part of learning and understanding the subject. The knowledge gained at the school level was very helpful in explaining the various concepts to my students in the school while teaching. I always tried to disseminate the knowledge by relating it to the scientific especially biology related facts to the young children of elementary classes.

Elementary Math

I have studied Maths until 10th grade only. But I have the capability to teach the subject to the elementary class students. During my teaching career, I used to teach and guide the students in solving the sums if they had any problems solving them. Though it's not my major subject, but I find it easy and interesting to solve any subject related problems and assist the primary grade students in finding the solutions.

Elementary Science

Elementary Science had always been my favorite subject. I have studied it up to high school grade.I always got good grade in the subject and have the capability to teach it to the elementary class students. I love disseminating the knowledge of the subject to the learners whenever required. I have also taught this subject to elementary classes for many years till the new subject called EVS (Environmental Studies) was not introduced in the school.

English

I have done Master's in the subject and I used to teach this subject in the elementary classes in INDIA. I have no problem in teaching the subject till the 5th grade students.I used to teach using various known to unknown techniques, relating the content to the real life situations, smart class modules, e-book, demonstration, fun-filled activities and by conducting quizzes and competitions etc.

Grammar

It was my personal favorite topic to teach the language in the elementary classes. This topic included conduction of various participatory activities so all the students paid attention in understanding the concept and always took part while performing of the activities and understood it well. The activities included puzzles, quizzes, flash cards, worksheets, smart class activities, live examples with demonstration etc. The rules of using grammar related topics were also taught in a systematic way so that children could write the sentences well using the correct parts of the speech.

Handwriting

I have got many certificates for good handwriting. Even my authorities and management have praised me a lot. I used to take summer hobby classes in India for improving the handwriting of the kids in English and Hindi. I always laid stress on the formation of the letters while taking handwriting classes. I am very good at writing English in cursive.

Hindi

I have studied Hindi till my high school graduation but my grades were very high and I used to teach the subject in India in primary classes too. So, I have experience teaching the subject in primary classes and can guide them wherever required.

Nutrition

I have done B.Sc. Home Science (Bachelor's Degree)in which Food and Nutrition was the main subject. So I have studied this topic well and I feel fully qualified and comfortable to teach the subject to primary grade students. I was also an ABO of Amway company which deals in selling of the nutrition products apart from other field areas and I've gathered a lot of information from there also which helped me in enhancing the knowledge of the subject and can be beneficial for my students too. As a teacher of primary grade students and I have taught this topic also while teaching of the science to them.

Reading

Since I had been teaching Languages to the elementary class students for many years in India, Reading was also one of the four main teaching skills of the languages there. So I don't find it difficult now also if I have to assist the learners of elementary classes in reading and comprehending the passage and making it easier for them to understand. For the improvement of the Reading skill, one has to lay emphasis on the pronunciation, fluency and accuracy and even the intonation of the words and the recitation of the poem in the elementary classes.All these sub-skills need to be improved and taken care of equally. I think I'll be able to come up to the expectation level of the parents if I try to teach their kids in the improvement of this skill.

Vocabulary

This topic in the language needed to be explained by quoting various examples so that all the students understood it well. I also took the help of the participatory activities, dictionary and innovative teaching strategies so that they could hone the capability of understanding the content in the elementary classes. A great emphasis was laid on reading, writing and understanding the correct spellings of the words along with their meanings.
