English Language Tutor
My main aim with my lessons is to tackle what a student finds the most difficult and where most help is needed, so that the most improvement can be made. But at the same time I am also friendly and enthusiastic, and would ensure each lesson remains enjoyable and interesting as I recognize this is also vital for improvement.
I have 5 years of productive experience working as a private tutor and I have been able to successfully tutor students to pass various school exams, national exams and international exams.
I have helped many struggling students achieve their choice grades, I am firm, friendly and committed to my work. I have an innovative capacity to ensure that impressive results are achieved from my students.
I hope to instill a genuine interest in the subjects! 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 believe it is equally important to instill a sense of organisation into my students. Not just in the practical sense of effective note taking and filing but also in relation to a students ability to organize their own thoughts.
A well organised mind is much more adept at problem solving because it grants students the ability to take a step back and see the bigger picture.
I help my students to do this by talking often and in depth with them about problem solving in general and how we can apply the same techniques across a huge range of subjects and questions.
It has often been said that education is less about learning facts by rote and more about training yourself to think about the world in a different (and hopefully more useful) way.
I also like to engage my students in conversations that take us well beyond the sometimes restrictive syllabus.

At the beginning of each session with a student, I will assess the child to ascertain where he/she has weaknesses and strengths. I then create my lesson plan and tailor it to address the weaknesses of the child and also harness the strength of the child also to suit the learning style the child. I liaise with the parent on how best to help the child perform better. I ensure I give assignments after each session to also ascertain how much of what was taught the student grasped.
