English Language Tutor
An experienced teacher
Through giving years of one-on-one tutorials at various levels I have found the most important learning tool is to kindle the students own interest and love of their subject. I am passionate about English Language, and I enjoy discovering that excitement in new students! Confidence is often vital for this, so I encourage students to realise the value of their own ideas by giving thoughtful feedback, and creating a supportive relationship. This helps students to discover their own questions about a text, and gently guides their natural intellectual creativity and curiosity.
As a passionate teacher with the goal of imparting knowledge to the learning minds of my students my teaching style is aligned to the needs of whomever I'm teaching because I believe that everyone learns best at their own pace. For those students who struggle, I will help them break down the subject into easily understandable principles as it fosters a strong base in the discipline from which they can improve.
For stronger students I will challenge them to push their understanding of the subject further and to think outside the box with their answers. I believe that people learn best when they are enthused about their subject; I want to help students enjoy their work so that they can perform to the very best of their ability.
I also believe in working together with students to find which learning and revision methods work best for them, be it a repeated use of textbooks and practice worksheets, or a more visual approach.
I am results focused, but also believe the process of learning and widening a student's horizons in a given subject(s), are paramount to their education. I encourage the student to look beyond their syllabus, to deepen their knowledge of the subjects as it increases their interests and inspiration.
