For me, simply memorising things have never been effective. I always like to approach problems with a unique perspective and a large part of my teaching involves continuously doing practice questions. I am someone who has extensively looked into the science of learning and I find that there are many things that students do which are actually very ineffective, my goal is to avoid doing things like that too much and more prioritize the methods of learning that are scientifically proven to actually work.
My first lesson will likely be to get to know my student and understand how they think/work. I think building a connection with the person you're helping can be very important in order to encourage participation and eagerness.
I am a student currently studying A levels in biology, chemistry, and maths. Maths has always been something I've enjoyed and I would love to teach others. I have a grade 9 (A**) in GCSE maths and an A* in GCSE further maths (this is along with another eight grade 9s - A**- I managed to get).

Maths - Grade 9
English language - Grade 9
English literature - Grade 9
Biology - Grade 9
