Experienced Teacher

I believe that my responsibility as a tutor is not only to teach my students the necessary content, but also to arm them with all the necessary tools they will need to enjoy taking their learning far beyond our sessions.

The first of these tools, which can never be overstated, is a genuine interest in the subject! Once that interest is sparked it becomes much easier for students to motivate themselves, a skill which will help them extract as much joy as possible from all their future learning. I also like to engage my students in conversations that take us well beyond the sometimes restrictive syllabus.

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.
