I believe children work better when they are able to understand the subject. This is not always possible when they are in a traditional classroom. I build on that understanding and work at their own pace. I work with each child so that we travel the learning journey together. This way as the subject intensifies they are able to move on seamlessly. My aim is to boost children's confidence and give them the tools to unlock their own learning potential.
I also facilitate learning through a warm and friendly, yet organised and thorough, approach. Initial assessment is vital to uncover gaps and misconceptions which may hinder progress. Children need to enjoy learning and my job is to make it as enjoyable as I can, while inspiring the child themselves to want to do better and achieve. Each child is unique and learns differently; at different rates and in different ways- my aim is also to find the most effective methods for them to achieve their potentials and enjoying the processes along the way. Over the years my students have improved tremendously in this exciting subject.
