Experienced Masters Degree Tutor offering online teaching to History/ International Studies and Arithmetic Students 6-15 years

Methodology

My Teaching method is online and student centred in that the student has a lot to offer , regardless of a lack of a specific subject- knowledge. I adhere to student question style of teaching. Encouraging all questions. My philosophy is 'the only daft question is , a question that isnt asked'. My students do not work in 'silos' but as a team we work together to whichever goal. Building upon the students already acquired knowledge, increasing confidence from day one.

Experience

I am an experienced Former I.T. Engineer for National and International Businesses / B.T. and the U.N. Previously tutored ICT / History and Arithmetic to GCSE level and A+. For 5 years 2 and 3 respectively. Widely-travelled , worked and lived and 6 different countries.
