An excellent Maths Teacher
My approach to tutoring is to start with questions. In my view, that is the only way to assess the student's current understanding -- sometimes they are already halfway there! Then, I take the aspect that wasn't quite right and try to ask more questions in an attempt to lead the student to the right answer, but using their own thought-processes, so that on an exam, they are able to reason through it themselves.
I teach with the view that learning is an end in itself, as many topics can be very interesting or amazing which I try to communicate to my students.
In my teaching, I am particularly concerned with building up my students' confidence. Particularly for test/exam preparation, becoming confident in one's ability to master the exam is vital for success. I do this by coming up with creative ways to ensure that my students can find a way to enjoy the subject we are working on together.
I am very quick to spot and support my student's individual strengths which helps not only in personalizing my lesson plans, but is particularly helpful in assisting students to prepare effectively for tests and examinations. .
