My approach is driven by the student. I believe that with a base understanding of core concepts and the self-confidence to employ them, every student is capable of academic success.
I work collaboratively with parents and pupils to produce a programme of study which is tailored to the needs of the individual student, set goals and structure the tuition.
I am passionate and enthusiastic about learning and teaching and bring this positive outlook to every lesson. I make my lessons fun and engaging, introducing core theoretical concepts and working with students to apply these to problems. I encourage my students to ask questions, try things out and think out loud.
I set homework which is then discussed the following week. I am patient, emphatic and have a good intuitive understanding of how and why students may not understand something. This enables me to communicate complex, abstract ideas in a simple, accessible way that ‘clicks’ with the student.
I take pride in my ability to form excellent working relationships with all those that I teach and tutor. I am able to quickly identify a student’s current level, learning style and potential barriers to success. I then design a personalized programme accordingly.
My main focus is to promote deep understanding though I am a firm believer in developing fluency by providing opportunities for lots of question practice.
I have a strong interest in educational technologies and incorporate their use where appropriate to achieve maximum progress. I strongly believe in knowing it yourself and the ability of being confident to use an already known solution to tackle a new problem and this is what I want to foster into a child.

Over the years, I have proven myself to be very skillful with raising a strong foundation in primary school students. I have extensively taught Quantitative and Verbal Reasoning and every other elementary part of learning and even prepared some for common entrance. This does not leave out the Junior Secondary students that I have excellently taught, in all the necessary subjects in their basic curriculum.
