English Language Tutor
An experienced teacher
Whatever the circumstances, I take a holistic approach to my role as tutor and aim to help my students not only learn the curriculum or prepare for an entrance exam but also to become confident, independent learners, able to organise their work, put together revision timetables and develop methods to aid understanding and retention.
I am an educator who loves teaching and imparting knowledge to the young generation because I believe that every child is unique and a great leader of tomorrow.
Over the years I have been able to tutor a lot of students who have excelled academically and morally .
I work closely with each child to determine the ways in which they learn best, their interests, strengths and weaknesses, and feed this back into my tutoring methods, creating a tailor-made learning experience.
My methods are, of course, also informed by a thorough understanding of assessment requirements and criteria both for school entrance examinations and public examinations. I believe that a positive and confident attitude towards the academic subject being studied can be hugely beneficial in terms of results, and I try to engender this by providing a supportive yet challenging relationship and environment for study.
I think the most important quality in any tutor is patience. My first step is to perform an assessment of the student; this, along with a comparison of the student's academic goals, forms the basis of our lesson plan. I listen closely to the family's goals in order to tailor my approach specifically to that student.
I thoroughly enjoy tutoring each of the subjects I teach, and hope that I can transmit my enthusiasm and energy to my pupils.
