The first free initial session is usually spent getting to know the student. Then I send over some quick questions over a broad range of topics so that I can identify areas of importance for each individual tutee.
The first half of any session is talking over the work from the previous and answering any questions/covering anything that it is clear the child hasn't fully grasped. The latter half is usually running through the next topic when ready then working through some relevant questions together.
At the end, I offer a second opportunity to ask questions and send them away with good wishes and a little bit of homework to check they have understood the session.
I try to tailor the courses for the younger students around things they are interested in, TV shows or sports and such so any information about what may keep them interested from parents is always great.
Happy to work online, at houses withing the travel distance specified on the add or at The Hive Worcester
My name is Tallula V Kontic-Thomsen and I study medicine at the University of Cambridge. At A-level, I studied Physics, Biology, Chemistry and took Maths level, mechanics branch, a year early. Across these subjects I received A*A*AA.
I hope to become a paediatrician when I finish my degree and pride myself in my ability to work with children and teenagers. Due to my medical school training I am fully DBS checked.
I thoroughly enjoyed my primary and high school years and this was due to the teachers I had along the way.
I am happy to continue to watch over children for a while before/after tutoring if necessary at a £10/hr rate. Happy to tutor siblings/a group with the normal rate for the first child and £10 for extra children at home/the library or £8/hr per extra child online.
I have been friends with Tallula since we realised we had the same birthday back in 2012. Since then she has tutored me for my GCSE maths resit and helped me go from a fail to a B which was a HUGE deal for me and then tutored me through Alevel chemistry and my application to study medicine at Queens Belfast. I made my offer and have started this year and I have no doubt Tallula was part of the reason why!
She encouraged and helped me without being patronising and it is clear through her own achievements she knows what she is doing.
I would recommend Tallula for anyone as she is kind and caring but also honest enough to tell you when you're not trying hard enough or if you have made a mistake. (plus she has amazing notes) She is happy to teach through debate and discussion which I found to broaden my point of view but also better prepare me for my medicine interviews.
I could not recommend more highly
