Welcome to my profile!
My name in Karim Hajama and I am a recent university graduate who graduated with a Bachelor degree in Education at Macquarie University in 2020. Throughout my degree, I have gained immense knowledge and insight into how students learn and which teaching and learning methods would be the most appropriate given the situation and needs of the student. For example, teaching and learning methods that I will use for students who need further assistance, will be different to the teaching and learning methods that I will use for students who needs to be intellectually and academically challenged. Teaching and learning methods that will be used in my tutoring are all evidence-based and backed up by academic research, stemming from the immense research I undertook in this area throughout my studies. My academic knowledge has taught me to look at students’ learning needs from psychological, social and educational perspectives and to tailor my teaching and their learning in relation to the psychological and cognitive processes of learning, applying and retaining knowledge and the multiple ways that content and subject matter can be presented and introduced to students, in accordance with their interests and identities. This will be applied to all of my students and tutoring lessons. I have even applied my academic knowledge towards my own learning (such as, when I am trying to learn information effectively for exams) and as a result, it has become easier for me to learn new skills.
I also have a strong knowledge and understanding of the content and structure of the Australian K-6 primary school curriculum and know the standards of where students should be at in their learning given their year level. If a student may be struggling at school, I can use my curriculum knowledge to identify whether the student may be working below their year level and I would effectively tailor my tutoring practice, to assist that particular student in moving up to a situation where they at working at their year level. Throughout my studies I created lesson plans and units of work for students across Kindergarten to Year 6 in different subject areas, which were given Credit and Distinction grades. The lesson plans and units of work were tailored to students who need assistance, students needing to be intellectually challenged and students performing satisfactorily, given their year level.
I believe that every single student has the right and ability to become the greatest version of themselves and I am eager and willing to help them get there.
