I always tailor the sessions the specific needs of the student, taking into account their personality and learning style, what they're hoping to achieve and the time we have available. I tend to make the sessions fairly informal and engaging and aim to really pique the student's interest in the subject, which makes the learning process a lot easier.
For me, the first priority has to be maximising performance in exams and coursework but I also aim to cultivate a deeper understanding of the subject in my students. This not only provides confidence going into exams but also gives a solid foundation for their next level of study. Confidence here is key and this confidence will come from a thorough understanding of the subject which will in turn come from practice, hard-work, explanation and time (so starting early is best though short-term tuition is still effective).
In my experience, fear is often the biggest barrier to understanding maths so its essential that the student feels free to make mistakes and get things wrong in the sessions as this is a necessary part of getting to grips with the subject. Therefore, whilst I take the overall project of tuition seriously, the sessions themselves are often quite relaxed and conversational and I encourage the student to have as much input as possible.
Please message me for any more information. Thanks!
I have worked as a full-time tutor for 3 years and have over a thousand hours of tutoring experience. I have also taught children with behavioral/attendance issues to help them get the grades they need outside of the traditional school setting. I also teach classes at primary school level for more able and talented children. At University I worked as a teaching assistant and mentor at an inner city school in London.
I have a degree in Physics from Imperial College London and a Certificate of Higher Education in Electrical Power Engineering from Aston University. I have worked in engineering for the National Grid.
