Science

For her online science classes, Khalilah makes sure to keep her students engaged by using graphics and videos to help learners understand their lessons.

 

In this clip, Khalilah shows us a glimpse of her lesson on the digestive system. Students learn about the different organs in the digestive system with the help of graphics and video materials as well as build their science vocabulary!

Coach Khalilah

fractions tutoring, Themba Tutors

Khalilah is a current employee of the New York City Department of Education. She has earned an M.S. in Special Education from Pace University and she is also pursuing an additional Masters Degree in Instructional Technology from Touro College. Khalilah has many years of experience working in public and private schools working with students ages 8-21. Her experience ranges from working with students with severe brain injuries to students with mild to moderate executive functioning deficits and learning disabilities.

Khalilah has tutored students 1-on-1, provided total home instruction, and taught in 8:1:1 and also 12:1:1 classroom environments. She has worked with students diagnosed with ADHD, learning disabilities, language-based disabilities, hearing and visual impairments, autism, and intellectual disabilities. Khalilah performs educational assessments and designs an individualized curriculum for students with various learning differences, including visual and language-based challenges, ADHD, executive learning differences, traumatic brain injuries, and spectrum disorders.

Khalilah’s relationship with the student and family is her first priority, and she views her work in education as a duty to the community. Khalilah believes that learning should be fun and interesting to the child. Her teaching philosophies follow the Postmodernism and Progressivism approaches to teaching. The basic tenets of these philosophies believe that the child’s interest provides motivation for all the work; believes that cooperation between the school and home is necessary to meet the natural interests and activities of the child; focuses on the creative thinking of the child, individual differences, and the teacher’s role as a guide; and, believes that instead of transferring and reproducing a steady fact in the educational process, it should be considered an invention, innovation, and change.

Khalilah is currently a mentor for the Men Teach program. This program is geared toward mentoring and encouraging men, specifically men of color, on the art and science of teaching in the public school system. She is also a member of CCER, which is an acronym for Critically Conscious Teachers Rising, which aims to change systematic inequalities in the NYC Department of Education.

Khalilah helps students master reading comprehension, writing, study skills, comprehension of math concepts, and developing math skills. She also provides assistance with students’ executive functioning skills in a manner that they are able to understand and reason in a positive way. She strongly supports elementary and middle school math and science curricula and programs, specifically Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Khalilah works with students in grades K-8 and teaches English Language Arts, Math, NGSS (elementary and middle school), and assists with conversational English.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Why is science important?

Science is everywhere. For example, when a student rides to school on a bus, it already has many examples of technology based on the scientific method. The school bus is a product of many areas of science and technology, including mechanical engineering and innovation. The systems of roads, lights, sidewalks, and other infrastructure are carefully designed by civil engineers and planners. The smartphone in the student’s hand is a miracle of modern computer engineering. Outside the window of the bus, trees turn sunlight into stored energy and create the oxygen we need to survive. Whether “natural” or human-derived, every aspect of a student’s life is filled with science — from their own internal biology to the flat-screen TV in the living room.
