I plan teaching points and interactive tasks to span the entire lesson. I aim to create an environment where the student can ask questions, make mistakes and therefore build confidence. I aim to make studying enjoyable, rather than a chore.
For university application admissions lessons, the start of the lesson is usually a powerpoint explaining the background information needed for the aspect of the application being tutored, followed by tasks to help the student apply what they have learnt to their own application.

Having known Aileen since university, she has always been extremely conscientious about her work and is always diligently prepared, whether in academic work or otherwise. Aileen is good with people, as well as numbers, so I would recommend her to anyone looking for a friendly and knowledgeable tutor.
Aileen and I studied together at university; she has always been great at breaking down problems and explaining her reasoning, in addition to being incredibly hard-working, punctual and professional. She is reliable and approachable, and will go the extra mile to prepare her sessions to be tailored and engaging for her students!
We have know Aileen for a number of years now and she helped our daughter out hugely at the start of her secondary school; her knowledge, understanding and patience whilst teaching is a true skill, we cannot recommend Aileen highly enough.
Aileen tutored my 12 year old daughter, Maddie, in Science subjects during lockdown. She proved to be reliable, professional and knowledgeable. She helped Maddie overcome a lack of confidence and passed on her enthusiasm in the subject. Maddie went from hating science to loving it! I was delighted to have found Aileen and wouldn't hesitate engaging her again in the future.
