Lesson

Experienced Teacher

To understand each student’s learning style, I will chat to them about what they like and dislike about the subject, and what they struggle with the most. I also want to get a sense of each student’s hobbies and interests, as I have found this to be integral in making tuition sessions more engaging. For example, students tend to be more receptive to learning about persuasive writing if they can write about a topic they are interested in.

About

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.

To me, learning is always best done actively. I’ve personally never learned much by being talked at so that's not how I teach. I ask lots of questions and expect a good level of engagement during a session.

I also believe that at the heart of even the trickiest problems is a series of simple solutions. I aim to make those simple solutions clear and to help students to think clearly and effective for themselves.

Above all, learning doesn't happen very well if a student isn’t engaged. I’m good at helping my students become interested in what they're studying and, even if it takes a little while, it's more than worth it.
