General Mathematics Tutor
Helping students learn more efficiently is extremely important, as it allows them to have a good work-life balance. When this doesn't exist students can start to resent their studies, which is a huge barrier to learning. It also helps in the run-up to exams, when time is scarce and prioritizing becomes a vital part of success.
It is a privilege to get to work with so many engaging and unique young people. It is my job to find an approach and structure to best facilitate each individual students growth. Sometimes a child needs a little help to catch up or at other times wants to drive on past their peers and excel.
Perhaps there is a learning or behavioral problem, or perhaps there is no problem at all. I think the first thing to do is: respect the student, to take them in and to listen to them. Then it is a simple case of giving them what they need. Maybe a subject needs to be more fun, maybe the student needs the space and time to understand, maybe they need practice or maybe they just need some structure.
I therefore adapt my tutoring to the specific requirements of each pupil in accordance with their personal requirements, and ensure that they receive the most relevant assistance possible for their course or examination.
Most of all, I feel that tutoring should be a motivating and enlightening experience for every student, as a facilitator to achieving one's highest potential
