tutoring & advice


 with Quentin Newhouse






short description:
Finding workable and practical applications for statistics issue
 
long description:
Making statistics understandable for all students. Non-math students should understand the ease of learning numbers and statistics. All statistical concepts are related and differ in power and precision. Once one understands that numbers are all around us, such as the day one was born, the moment of the day, the time in one\\\'s life, it becomes easier. The course is designed to take the mystery out of learning statistics.

Teaching Philosophy
Quentin Newhouse, Jr., Ph.D.

After thirty-five years of university level teaching, I can truthfully say that my teaching philosophy has not been altered by time .I can summarize my philosophy in four factors:
• Passion, enthusiasm and perserverance for teaching
• Teaching flexibility and experience
• Use of Didactic Approach
• Application of appropriate technologies
Passion, enthusiasm and perseverance for teaching
I entered the teaching field to provide a service to those individuals who needed to learn material I had already been blessed to master. I have always placed service first above advancement, and the penchant to race to the end of the textbook or syllabus by the end of the term .I believe that each of us has a calling on our lives that should compel us to pursue it . It takes all of the passion and preparation necessary to fulfill that calling in the short time we have on Earth. My calling and passion have been teaching.
My enthusiasm and perseverance have been contagious to my students. No matter how many times I teach a subject, I have found something new, exciting and intellectually stimulating to present in the classroom. I learn as much from my students as I teach. I find that all students bring a wealth of life experience that is applicable to the classroom. I see the classroom as a learning laboratory where the blend of theory and practice can be constantly tested in the crucible of critical thinking.

Teaching flexibility and experience
I enjoy teaching the introductory classes as much as the advanced or graduate classes and statistics. I find each subject equally challenging to present to diverse students who are similar, yet markedly different and unique for that particular learning situation. I have had experiences teaching on campus as well as online and have no preference. I have been a student in taking some courses to enhance my appreciation of what adult students face in balancing education, work, and their personal lives. I have taught students of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and those with physical and learning disabilities. I even taught statistics to a blind student who had vision when he was a child.
I have been offered many professional opportunities that are evidence of my willingness and ability to serve in many capacities. I have worked in part-time and full-time capacities in many universities as well as an administrator Chair and Dean.

Teaching Philosophy
Dr. Quentin Newhouse, Jr. (Page 2)
Use of Didactic Approach
The didactic approach to learning has inspired my teaching career. I believe that all students are active learners who are responsible for their investment in their learning experiences. I have found that campus as well as online students learn better when they feel they can learn at their own pace and with some measurable and attainable standard. I embrace the concept of diversity in students, learning approaches and in the classroom. I have maintained contact with many of my former students, some of whom have become college professors. Active learning in students is best facilitated by active listening from their instructors. There are various learning curves in any learning situation that may or may not manifest themselves in high grades by the end of the term. I use each student`s baseline as a measure of achievement and strive to reward progress in whatever measure it occurs in the classroom. I use humor where appropriate to foster the learning experience.
I also attempt to foster a motivation to learn which is always not present in the beginning of the learning situation. Learning does not have to be painful, if the material is “pre-digested`” for content, presentation, and relevance. I have had consistently outstanding student ratings because I care and try to reflect that understanding and sympathy in my teaching and grading style.
I have found that experience is the best teacher. I find highly relevant and cogent material from my personal life as well as in contemporary media that supplement the theoretical material presented in the text.

Application of Appropriate Technologies
I embrace the latest technologies in my classroom. I use PowerPoint, Word, and Excel in teaching psychology, sociology, social studies, history, and business courses. I migrate to blend the latest multi-media approaches that work best in the appropriate learning environments.
In conclusion, the consistency in my teaching philosophy over thirty-five years has clustered around the four factors of1) passion, enthusiasm and perserverance for teaching, 2)teaching flexibility and experience, 3) Use of Didactic Approach and 4)Application of appropriate technologies. As I have more teaching opportunities that augment my teaching philosophy, I hope that my goal of successful classroom experiences will continue and thrive.
