Our teaching staff graduated from top universities around the world, including:

 

E2 teachers were top students themselves, but even so, academic credentials are only minimum requirements.  In fact, we hire less than 10% of teaching applicants. We have hand-picked our teaching staff through a rigorous, multi-stage recruitment process that includes testing of subject matter expertise, delivery of sample lectures, and behavioral testing for cultural fit.

Teacher Mission Statement

Everyone wants to tell you what to do and what’s good for you. They don’t want you to find your own answers. they want you to believe theirs.” -Socrates

This quote resonates with me and encompasses my teaching style. I don’t like to tell students what is; rather, I want them to figure out why or how things are the way they are. In our classes, we challenge everything and question everything. Students come up with their own conclusions, then we compare them to the conclusions of today.

I believe the best way to inspire students is for them to be inspired themselves. We feed off of their interests and likes to make the subjects more relatable. Classes should be fun as well as educational. The goal of every class is not just about the content knowledge, but also the life skills – relating whatever they are learning to everyday events.

Teacher Mission Statement

As an educator, a mathematics teacher in particular, my goal is to make the process of learning gratifying, interesting, and helpful to the students. I also believe that the ability to self-study is the most crucial skill that the students need to attain in order to internalize learning and turn it into a lifelong passion. Therefore, I would like to assist them in achieving one small win at a time and gradually build up their confidence, which would in turn ignite the passion for mathematics and knowledge acquisition in general.

Teacher Mission Statement

My goal as a teacher is to inspire students to utilize their own untapped skills and potential to succeed in their endeavors and aspirations. This means a great deal of emphasis is put on relationship and confidence building. I strive to build a relationship with my students where they are comfortable asking questions and compelled to want more from themselves as well as me. Once a student has taken their personal and academic development into their own hands, aside from what a teacher would want, I believe they are in a great position to succeed.

Teacher Mission Statement

To me, teaching is about taking on a journey of knowledge together. And during that journey, the student should be in the driver seat as many times as possible. In my class, instead of sitting at one place and trying to perceive what is being presented, students can move around, build the lessons alongside the teacher and participate in different activities to fortify what they have just learned. They are also to be guided and inspired to find the right questions, which is an important skill that will help with any other learning experience that they might have at school or in life.

Teacher Mission Statement

Linda teaches Math to elementary and middle school level students with the aim for her students to enjoy Math and let them experience how Math is used everywhere in our daily lives. She believes that mastering Math contributes to the student’s problem solving skills. This is the reason that she doesn’t always follow Math textbooks chapter by chapter, but works with online math games and uses many different toys, tools and ways to find answers to Math problems. Linda focuses on teaching the reasoning behind Math formulas and only continues when the student masters the topic. Her motto: Solving Math problems should become a habit as simple as ‘brushing your teeth’.

Teacher Mission Statement

As a Math teacher, my aim is to encourage students to take the initiatives of their learning. I always want to see the problems from students’ perspectives then personalize the lesson to fit their thinking process. By this way, students will feel more comfortable and adaptable to new materials, which results in a deeper understanding and better performance. As long as the students feel confident about their capacities, I believe they will not hesitate to strive for further excellence.

Teacher Mission Statement

I don’t believe that teachers have to be the smartest people who know the answers to everything. It is important to be knowledgeable and well-prepared, yes, but it is essential that we teachers, through whole-hearted encouragement and gentle guidance, empower our students to try, fail, and find the answers for themselves. The worst thing that a teacher can do is to say: “You will never be able to do this,” because every single kid has his or her own strength and potential, and it is the teachers’ duty and privilege to see these in their students and enable them to surpass all expectations.

Teacher Mission Statement

There is a statement by Barack Obama that “What do teachers do? They give students their all – their knowledge, their creativity, their focused attention and their love”. All these things are what teachers can do for their students. In my opinion, A good teacher can inspire hope, ignite the imagination, and instill a love of learning. I endeavor to teach students about mathematics through teaching them how to think instead of what to think, encouraging lifelong learning and sharing my enthusiasm for learning.
