An experienced teacher
I will begin our first session with a check-in about ourselves, what you are interested in learning or need to get achieved over our time together. From then on lessons will be catered to the timetable, objectives, and system of measuring your progress which we have discussed.
I am highly enthusiastic about teaching and I endeavour to help my students feel the same fascination when I teach. It is also important to me that a student truly understands the concepts they are learning, as I find this is the best way to retain the information and apply it to solving problems.
I particularly love that light bulb moment when a student understands a new concept! I take the time to acquaint myself with each student’s learning style and level of ability so I can tailor my teaching style to their needs, and I focus on creating a comfortable atmosphere for my students to ask questions.
My approach to tutoring is always to tackle fundamentals first, with the aim of developing confidence and basic skills. I have a friendly and approachable style to my teaching, as I feel a key aim of private tuition v.s. classroom teaching is a more relaxed environment in which the student should feel empowered to as many questions as they need and approach lessons as a discussion not a lecture.
