Prepclass Tutor Since: January 2017

As a tutor I tailor my knowledge and input to each individual student based on their needs. I feel strongly that an optimistic, 'you can do it' approach - alongside eliminating a student’s fear of particular topics by broaching them at the get-go and instilling good exam technique are all essential.


When tutoring I believe that understanding and motivation rarely arises in the absence of relatability. As such, I aim to make seemingly difficult subjects personally relevant and interesting, rendering abstract concepts far more tangible.


This is absolutely integral from Early Years to University education and I often find that a different way of approaching a topic, or a strong analogy is all it takes to make a difficult subject become simple and intuitive.


I also have a great passion for building confidence, and my tutees relate that my enthusiasm and positivity helps a great deal with making them feel positive about working and their own abilities. I am extremely patient and encouraging and will always make sure every child feels they have gained confidence to independently approach any topic I help them with in order to build their self-belief and autonomy.


I am able to help a lot with exam and essay writing techniques; scientific writing and essay construction are things I am very confident in teaching.
