I believe the fundamental basis of education is to continuously develop an individual so that apply what they learn and become productive citizens and contribute to the societies around them. There are three types of learners: tactile, auditory, and visual. In addition, it is also important to determine a students Students learn in many ways—by seeing and hearing; reflecting and acting;reasoning logically and intuitively; memorizing and visualizing.Teaching methods also vary. Some instructors lecture, others demonstrate or discuss; some focus on rules and others on examples; some emphasize memory and others understanding. How much a given student learns in a class is governed in part by that student’s native ability and prior preparation but also by the compatibility of his or her characteristic approach to learning and the instructor’s characteristic approach to teaching.

When I was a little boy, I had issues learning and retaining information and so I did well in certain subjects but very poorly in others. I was a smart kid bu any standard but that did not translate academically. So I decided that the only way for me to pass the test and exams that I was failing was to design my own way of learning. I listened, took notes and went home and studied differently, I crammed every thing and tried to remember as much as i could, my objective was to pass the exams not to understand the concepts I was being taught. I passed all my tests but I did not understand most of it. When I was in college I changed all that and fell in love with teaching because I did not want to see anyone take the same painful route that I took growing up.
