Through my teaching years, a large number of parents have asked me to help their teenagers with learning to not only understand school texts but to also learn to competently express their ideas. Both my class teaching and private sessions involve the exploration of many types of articles and in-depth discussions. In every case, I first teach the basics according to the students level and then disseminate knowledge that is always one level higher than the grade they are in.
This supportive pushing is challenging, but it is done with patience and direction. This is very much from my own experience with certain professors and teachers have inspired me not by their public lectures but by their availability where I was invited and encouraged to have intellectual dialogues that often went above and beyond the curriculum level. This has been the method I have used with all students, some who have gone on to major in medicine or business, others who have pursued their love for architecture, environmental science or engineering. Whether they aspired to study at UBC, Harvard, or Stanford, many have worked with me since Grade 9.
I am therefore not a proponent of students being force-fed or dictated to. But I do teach study methods that will help students fulfill the prerequisites of the major exams. I also guide them in their portfolio preparation and give supportive vocational advice. I see every child and teenager as a special being, as someone who is meant to walk a journey that is unique, according to his or her own gifts and personality. My journey is to provide nurturing support and show them possibilities not contemplated before.
