My teaching method is entirely based on the individual student. As no two students are alike I will adapt my teaching to that student. Some students prefer to listen and sit still, so those lessons will be teacher-based. Some prefer to be heard and move around, those lessons will be student-based.
I believe in nurturing the strengths of a student first before tackling the weaknesses. This instils confidence and allows the student to grow and achieve results at a greater pace.
