I'm a college leaver, with A Levels in Physics, Chemistry, Biology. I prefer tutoring 1:1 or with a small group. I usually use PowerPoint presentations, but I like talking to them more and using videos, books etc. My teaching methods start of with knowing your strengths and weaknesses (as any good educator would) and acting on them. This can be in terms of subject topics, exam techniques, even confidence etc.
From there, I usually expand on your strengths, see why you succeed in those areas, and try apply those same reasons for your weaknesses, and making sure you keep applying yourself. Be it with homework, rewards and incentives, or even slowing down to evaluate to see where you go wrong. Rome wasn't built in a day! I'll assess your improvement with past papers/mock exams.
My lessons are usually an hour long, I'm willing to offer more though, and I go through different topics in each lesson, or sometimes carry a topic over if I see you've had some trouble with it.
As a tutor, I like to think I'm quite approachable and just a nice person in general. However, I'm no pushover! :) I will be firm if the need arises, though I'm quick to praise too.
I've been an academic mentor for 2 years at my secondary school, for classes in year 7, 8 and 9, classes of around 30, usually helping another teacher. Though, I've taught lessons in GCSE too, and I think that's where my strengths lie. The exam boards I've covered are AQA and OCR.
For my GCSEs I got an A* in Physics
