I will encourage independent thinking, challenging students to approach questions in interesting and creative ways, whilst actively focusing on any areas found difficult.
Teaching kids has been the most rewarding experience; it allows me to impart some of my love for learning and gives me the satisfaction of helping and guiding a pupil to discover their own abilities and the confidence to do the work.
I treat my pupils as individuals - that is, I don't patronize them as I find that having a good relationship and enjoying our time together helps the work process and builds confidence. I like to discuss a subject beyond the set syllabus and imbue my pupil with the desire to discover further. The syllabus can be dull and confining - I believe it is important to show how much more there is out there to learn and enjoy.
I am reliable, flexible, kind, firm and detail-oriented. I place great emphasis on sound foundations, good organisation and exam technique. I seek to stimulate my student's curiosity in the subject. I will also give the student practical guidance for tackling texts, revision and tests.
My approach has consistently yielded higher academic achievement and better motivated students.
I tailor my teaching for each child and have substantial prior experience to draw upon.

I taught Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics and Further Mathematics to students in the senior secondary section. I did this with the aid of a detailed lesson plan which was created in accordance with the British curriculum. I prepared the students for their IGCSE's. I made use of past question booklets to help them have a feel of how external examination questions are set.
