Matching Students and Tutors

Hey, I am Umairia and completing my Ph.D in applied statistics. 1. I am applying sophisticated statistical tools in the field of Education. My research answers the question about how to teach students, what misconceptions they have, and what hinders their conceptual understanding. This enabled me to understand the hidden factors of why students cannot understand certain mathematical or statistical concepts. One of the aims of my Ph.D was to design interactive engagement methods for teaching. Furthermore, I analyzed students’ answers during their multiple-choice tests and how these choices reflect their understanding of a concept investigated. The selection of incorrect answer choices showed students’ lack of understanding and teaching what a student needs to learn to bring his/her incorrect answer to the correct answer. 2. One of the interesting things I learnt through my experience is how student made the mental models of concepts they learn in their high school and how this learning transfers in their high level education. 3. I have been teaching statistics and mathematics at various levels and teaching these subjects over the years enhanced my understanding how to make students to use their full potential, motivating and encouraging them that they can do and achieve higher grades. 4. My way of teaching is simple, interactive and relating problems with their daily lives or with the examples they have experienced. The most enjoyable moment in my class is when I explain a complex problem in a simplistic manner and students respond “a ha!”
