Prepclass Tutor Since: August 2017

I am an active, vibrant and articulate tutor who has an interest in details, knowledge acquisition, the promotion of excellence and above all, making a positive difference in academic pursuit of my students.


I have been a teacher for over 9 years. I am hugely enthusiastic about all my subjects and I believe it is vital to create a supportive, enjoyable and productive learning environment for students.


After first meeting a student, I make thorough assessment of what I believe they need most from me, which could be anything from simple organisational instruction through to exam tricks and techniques, but it is with confidence that I feel I do my best work: those expectations that I hold dictate that I believe in all of my students entirely and wholeheartedly and, as such, mean that I will push the people I work with into expressing themselves as faithfully and as completely as possible at all times.


Another approach I endeavor to use is the development of a solid relationship with my students as this allows me to discover their learning techniques, interests, strengths and weaknesses and provide them with specific support and guidance.


The benefit of private tutoring is the fact that it allows me to provide tailor made lessons and strategies to my students which allows me to directly address any areas of lower confidence and bolster areas of strength and capability.

Imparting knowledge has been my great skill and my students have recorded success in both local and international examinations.
