English Language Tutor
As a teacher, I believe interaction and discussion are prerequisites to a successful tutorial. A lesson is not a lecture; rather, it is an opportunity to inform and consolidate understanding through active engagement in a specific topic.
Having worked with students of various ages, I have come to notice a common trend: often, the basic knowledge of how to answer a question or solve a problem is present, but the student lacks the skill-set to confidently perform this in an exam scenario. My interlocutory approach will encourage critical investigation into a topic, resulting in a more complete understanding and improved confidence.
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.
