Lesson

Experienced Geography Tutor

Geography is the study of the physical features of the earth and its atmosphere, and of human activity as it affects and is affected by these, including the distribution of populations and resources, land use, and industries. I guide my students is on an individual-based level and encouraged them to actively engage and think, making links with information explained to them, and not spoon fed. Especially applicable to Geography, my lessons have a strong focus on exam technique, including essay structure and language; and effective exam preparation.

Prepclass Tutor Since: May 2016

My name is James, I am a graduate of Geology from Federal University of Technology, Minna.

In my years of teaching, I have discovered that every student is unique in his or her approach to learning. I strongly embrace such individuality, tailoring my own approach and teaching techniques to each student's specific needs, whilst drawing out the full potential of this uniqueness.

My methods are, of course, also informed by a thorough understanding of assessment requirements and criteria both for school entrance examinations and public examinations.

I believe that a positive and confident attitude towards the academic subject being studied can be hugely beneficial in terms of results, and I try to engender this by providing a supportive yet challenging relationship and environment for study.

I use a mixture of humour and rigorous learning, and also aim not just to focus on the exam, but to broaden the student's general cultural outlook.

    I always keep my students stimulated and engaged, I switch between difficult exercises and more relaxed tasks, which stretches them beyond the syllabus. I often build a reading list to both improve performance and extend the student's knowledge. Every few sessions I will set a mini test, to test the student's understanding of previous lessons, i carry out my evaluation and make corrections where necessary.
