How would you describe your teaching style?

I am a diagnostic teacher who has years of experience with getting to the bottom of what students misunderstand. I know that to understand science, students must grasp the foundational concepts. if there are gaps misconceptions, students eventually reach a ceiling that they find difficult to overcome without support. Once I identify gaps, I am skilled in designing a sequence of clear explanations, practise activities and advice for revision, which provides support for students to build confidence and succeed.
