They all scored over 90% for last term's exams in maths. One was first in her class, and another was second. Year 12 Physics Oliver was one of only 3 students to achieve an "excellence" for his latest physics internal exam. Year 11 NCEA Maths Katie achieved an "excellent PLUS" for internal exam on number problems. Year 11 Cambridge Maths Travis scored 82% for his Cambridge IGCSE exam last year. Year 7 English Gaarunya received top marks for her biography of Sir Edmund Hillary. She was asked to donate her essay to the school. TEACHING STYLE: My first goal is to help the students understand what is going on in class so that they can take an interest in it and not feel embarrassed. This usually involves giving them some background in the fundamentals of the topic and setting homework so that they gain confidence and don't forget how to do it by the next week. If they are ok with what is happening in class I can then cover any other topics which they had trouble with previously. Once all that is done we can start looking at exam papers and learning some exam techniques. I use the "Socratic" method of teaching wherein I mostly keep asking questions until the light dawns. (I love that moment when a smile slowly spreads across their face and I know that they have got it.) When students feel that they are working something out for themselves it keeps them more involved and they remember it for longer. If we think of the mind as a muscle, it also strengthens that muscle for when it is needed in exams, effectively increasing their IQ. Hence the comment of one of my students that: "Mr Porter explains things well and makes it fun!"
