English Language Tutor
Building self confidence and fostering a love for the subject is my overall aim. To do this, I endeavour to establish a close working relationship with each tutee based on trust and confidence that I will facilitate their exam success as well as address their wider educational needs.
Thought process, rather than content, lies at the heart of my ambition to develop self sufficient learners, yet I appreciate that content and technique cannot be underestimated when preparing for examinations.
I have taught at both Primary and Secondary schools, I was able to improve the overall performance of my pupils by 80% as compared to previous year before I joined the school.
My greatest skill is my ability to understand student strengths and weaknesses and be able to teach my students with practical examples which they can relate to in real life.
I believe it is vital that pupils gain a comprehensive understanding of how to decipher exams and the way they are marked and it is equally important for the student to feel confident, calm and capable when under exam conditions.
As an educator I am hugely enthusiastic about all my subjects and believe it is vital to create a supportive, enjoyable and productive learning environment for students.
Hence I try to be supportive and constructive when teaching, offering my students well prepared and structured sessions that are engaging, fun and productive. I work meticulously to ensure that the required skills are taught in an effective and memorable way, which will, in turn, make the student better at the subject that is being taught.
