About
FavoriteSTUDENT
FAVORITE

My teaching approach is based on two principles: engagement and method.

Engagement: Students learn more quickly and energetically if they are interested in the topic or skill that we are trying to master. Therefore I assess each student not only on their academic abilities but also their motivations and personality and adapt my lessons accordingly. This drives my students to learn during our time together and long after our lessons have finished.

Method: All subjects and skills can be mastered with a methodical approach and consistent work. For this reason I plan individual lessons and programmes of study with clear short and long-term objectives. With these my students and I can track and celebrate our progress as we go as well as identifying any areas that need extra work. This approach produces clear academic results and demystifies challenging subjects and skills.

My teaching style is heavily dictated by my student. My first lesson is all about discovering what type of learner they are. We’ll also talk about their interests and goals. This seemingly innocuous conversation often holds the key to motivating them towards success.
