I have a very open approach to tutoring where the lessons are adapted to students' personal learning styles and focus on the key areas they wish to improve. I believe best results come from personalised learning sessions and will always suggest having an introductory session with my tutees to establish the syllabus they are learning, how they like to learn and the areas these areas of improvement.
I am a recent Business Management graduate who achieved a first class degree from the University of Birmingham. I also have a TEFL qualification where I have been taught how to best to conduct lessons to ensure maximum results. I have previously tutored a variety of students ranging from GCSE students to first year university students.
