About Usama

I frequently assess my students' progress for learning to diagnose problems and understand their individual differences. Not everyone absorbs information and works problems in the same way, so effective instruction uses ongoing assessment to meet challenges and seek individualized pathways to the goals of instruction, especially in math. I differentiate instruction according to the learning approaches, levels and styles of learning in order to achieve my goals and objectives. I always focus on the positive and try to neutralize the negative as a step to change it to positive. Using well-focused technology and other manipulatives, experiments, and linking instruction to real-world problems also helps students gain mastery and hold their interest. Teachers frequently complain about student skill and knowledge levels of the students who come up from lower grades, but it is necessary to find out where the student is on the spectrum of learning and take them forward from there. Never give up on a student, but keep looking for ways to reach them. I frequently assess my students' progress for learning to diagnose problems and understand their individual differences.
