About the lesson
My name is Pierre Kablan and I teach from high school to college and university students.
In my view, a great teacher is like a great artist who uses basic tools to transform raw materials into valuable assets of society. However, great artists may not have the best tools or best skills – they are recognized because of their passion and their unique perspective of the world. That is the difference between an artist and an artisan. Teaching is similar. Great teachers are not just ones who transmit information, teach skills, and help students earn the best grades. They are those who share their passion for knowledge and curiosity with their students, inspire the students' creativity, develop their critical thinking ability, and prepare them for the complex world they will face after stepping off campus. Based on my own experiences of being a student and an instructor, I think the following four "principles" are the most noteworthy ones in good teaching:
First, passion is one of the key ingredients of effective teaching that leads to thorough preparation, a continuous desire to improve teaching skills and an intense delight in watching students learn. How well the students can learn greatly depends on how passionate and how devoted a teacher is.
Second, teaching is not just a way to impart knowledge, but can also be used as a method to foster interest in the subject. Students are naturally curious. They are intrigued by the world around them. Teaching is far more effective when students are truly intrigued, because they will "actively" learn and seek new knowledge rather than feeling like they are being "forced” to learn by the teacher.
Third, a teacher should encourage critical thinking and should always strive to be respectful of different opinions. Students should learn to think independently, not merely accept the teacher's opinions. A teacher should be prepared to challenge and be challenged by the students as every student possesses unique perspectives. A teacher should be supportive when considering students’ different perspectives.
Fourth, each student deserves an education tailored to his or her strengths and needs. I understand the difficulties and needs of students studying abroad. Their English abilities, cultural backgrounds and fundamental knowledge may vary greatly. It is my responsibility to help them develop the skills to overcome any obstacles and fulfill their dreams.
I believe my great passion for teaching, various past teaching experiences, strong academic background and multilingual communication skills will make me an excellent teacher.
