I believe that simply memorizing the relevant material for an exam is a totally inefficient way to learn. So I will be making sure that you know your Math inside out, forwards, backwards, sideways, and diagonally!
My approach to tutoring 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.

I made sure to organise tests and quizzes regularly to access their academic growth and understanding of topics covered. I made use of simple teaching aids to make class understandable and interesting. I recorded students performance regularly.
