I believe in a creative approach to learning: engaging lessons, application and feedback is always key. My work with my pupils involve creating a program that suits my students needs, we map out goals and assess our goals every week. In addition, my knowledge of the British School system is an asset, as I am able to help pupils excel in their entrance exams and be prepared for the year ahead.
Levels Taught: Lower Primary, Upper Primary
I have been professionally teaching and coordinating children for 5 years and for the love of teaching, I specialize in Mathematics, Numeracy, handwriting improvement, spelling, reading comprehension, basic computing, vocabulary building and basic science
My approach varies hugely depending on the child I am tutoring. However I think something which unifies it across the range of ages and abilities is that I always try to break down what seem like huge, daunting subjects or assignments into smaller, manageable, non-scary, fun tasks. I work closely with each child to determine the ways in which they learn best, their interests, strengths and weaknesses, and feed this back into my tutoring methods, creating a tailor-made learning experience. My methods are, of course, also informed by a thorough understanding of assessment requirements and criteria both for school entrance examinations and public examinations. I believe that a positive and confident attitude towards the academic subject being studied can be hugely beneficial in terms of results, and I try to engender this by providing a supportive yet challenging relationship and environment for study. I thoroughly enjoy tutoring each of the subjects I teach, and hope that I can transmit my enthusiasm and energy to my pupils.
My goal is to see the children I teach improve and be the best in the subjects I teach by having a weekly assessment to monitor progress.
