BSc (Hons) Economics Graduate Offering Excellent Primary and GCSE Maths, English, Economics, and Business Studies in Leeds.

Methodology

I base my teaching depending on each student's learning needs so I do not have a fixed teaching methodology. However, whichever way, in the end, I apply more for demonstration, examples, tests, exam among others. Most importantly, I make sure I cement a very good relationship with my students and then take it from there thereby ensuring they get the best out of the tutoring relationship we have.

Background

I have been tutoring for the past 5 years and I have taught 20 students individually. All my students have benefited from my excellent teaching ability and as such have gone on to achiever extremely good grades in their exams and coursework. It gives me great joy to be a positive impact in the lives of my students and I believe that there is more to be done in that regard.
