An experienced teacher
I find that patience and attentive listening are key skills as a tutor in enabling understanding and instilling a positive work ethic in young people. I am also alert to the fact that current examination assessment objectives demand specific techniques and demonstrations of skill from candidates and therefore that a coherent understanding of these specific exam techniques can be crucial to securing the highest grade.
Levels Taught: Upper Primary, Junior Secondary, Upper Secondary
I am very experienced in teaching Mathematics,Physics, English Language and other Science disciplines and have I developed a positive reputation for making my mode of teaching interesting. Adept at getting students interested in science subjects by assisting students who were having problems with the materials and getting them interested in learning and studying on their own, I evaluate students performance an a biweekly basis through tests to identify areas needing improvement. My attention to engagement and structured progress provides struggling students with the tools and attitude to help lift their grades, and assists well-performing students in discovering that extra flair and enjoyment that can distinguish their work at the highest level.
I firmly believe that no subject, however daunting, is too difficult for a student. My job and favourite activity is to find that relatable example or way of looking at a topic that can unlock complex material for a learner.
I spend a lot of time asking questions to make sure the students truly understand the concepts and then get them to teach it back to me as a way of clarifying their understanding. I try to come up with creative ways to learn and enforce concepts that are applicable to the real world.
I am also a big advocate in making sure students are equipped with all the tools to learn that will benefit them outside of our sessions , such as organisation and effective study techniques
