My method of teaching varies with each pupil I work with. However, in the first stages I believe it is essential to ascertain the immediate needs of the pupil, and discover where they think my help is most required

About

My strategies to tutoring is vast and encouraging. Indeed, i believe that establishing a good relationship with my student is of great importance and that the greatest progress is made is by developing open, honest and authentic dialogues.

Furthermore, i believe that an avenue for constantly asking of questions should be encouraged. Moments of authentic curiosity, whether about the etymology of a certain spelling word, the political positions of 'An Inspector Calls' or why it's possible to write an essay about a text without necessarily knowing what the author 'means' can both broaden comprehension and introduce challenging new ideas. Flexibly responding to just such inquiries is a big part of my practice, and is something i feel can really help ground or contextualize a subject for my student.

    As a class teacher, I tutor the pupils on the British curriculum and instruction. I make lesson plans and provide an excellent environment for learning. We engage in circle times in the early hours of the mornings. I ensure role playing with games in classes for easy assimilation of the subject matter.
