Lesson

Experienced Computer Science Tutor

I have gained first-hand experience of how to deliver and receive small group teaching from leading academic experts. It is important to establish clear goals to work towards, and additionally to grasp the students interests and aims towards higher education, so I can attempt to link what they are learning to subjects they may pursue in the future.

About

FAVORITE

I have 5 years of International teaching experience of Cambridge board. 

My teaching style is heavily dictated by my student. My first lesson is all about discovering what type of learner they are. We’ll also talk about their interests and goals. This seemingly innocuous conversation often holds the key to motivating them towards success.

To my mind learning is always best done actively. I’ve personally never learned much by being talked at so that's not how I teach. I ask lots of questions and expect a good level of engagement during a session.

I also believe that at the heart of even the trickiest problems is a series of simple solutions. I aim to make those simple solutions clear and to help students to think clearly and effective for themselves.

Above all, learning doesn't happen very well if a student isn’t engaged. I’m good at helping my students become interested in what they're studying and, even if it takes a little while, it's more than worth it. I have experienced remarkable success with pupils who wrote Common Entrance and with Junior secondary students in their external examinations.
