Hi! My name is Thahmina Islam, I love learning therefore I love to teach. I am truly very passionate about the subject of Sociology as I believe it's a topic that gets discussed in every day life. It's something that anyone and everyone can relate to and contemplate about because it's important. I think that students whom know nothing of the topic would find sociological concepts fascinating. Every situation and every person you come into contact with has been socialised in a certain way. We learn from our culture things such as how to interact with others and how to interpret another person’s actions. So how certain interactions unfold depends on how you’ve been socialised.
Additionally I would really like to teach History to students from year 5-8 as I think that it's good to know about culture as well as developing an understanding of higher level teaching so for example primary school students are ready for the upper school.
Topics in Sociology that I'd teach:
- Studying Society
- Crime & Deviance
- Famous Sociologists
Topics in History that I'd teach:
- Ancient Greece
- Victorians / Children in Victorian society
- Black History
- South Asian Cultural History
- Islamic History
- World War 1
- World War 2 / Children in World War 2
- Great Fire Of London
- Famous Figures
- The Black Death 12th & 15th Century / The Plague
- Everyday Life In The Middle Ages
- Medicine In Britain (Middle Ages / The Renaissance / Industrial Revolution / Modern Britain)
- Tudors (Henry 8th)
- Bangladeshi & Indian History
I have been giving lessons precisely for a year and about 2 months. These lessons were parted between 4 students. I have been teaching 3 of these students History since November 2016. I also taught another student Sociology for just a few months as they wanted to continue with History instead.
In total so far I've taught 5 students and currently teaching 3 of these students, I ask the carers or parents of these children to provide me with grades after exams or term assessments as it gives me guidance on what I should help the student improve and develop on or either stop teaching that topic and move on because they are great at that topic after our lessons. My students are top achievers I believe thanks to myself and definitely their considerable commitment towards learning.
As I would not like to name this students grades are: (Letters for respect of privacy.)
Student A; has received two 5A's & one 6B greatly improving from grade 3B & 4C.
Student B; is in year 8 and had received 30/30 on their end of term History Assessment.
