Methodology

My philosophy is that everyone has the ability to succeed with the right guidance and support. My general ethos with regards to my Lessons is that the students should be at the forefront and be truly engaged in their own learning. I believe that this instils a sense of responsibility, confidence and empowerment for the student. This will be done by encouraging the student to become aware of how they learn, what strategies work for them as an individual and how to overcome challenges to their own learning and progress.

I prefer to thoroughly prepare for the lessons so that I can create or source fun and visual learning resources which will aid in delivering engaging, goal oriented and effective lessons.

The lesson structure will initially start with a short and fun quiz, or past exam questions to review the student’s learning from the previous session. Then, I will go on to teach the planned session with opportunities for questions throughout. When the student feels more confident I will go through some exam style questions and ask that they verbally teach me how they would go about tackling the question. This is because I strongly feel that the ability to teach is a high standard from which to measure a student’s comprehension of a topic.

Nonetheless, I leave some flexibility to allow the students to focus on the specific needs that they may have for that lesson.

Experience

Hi! I am Annette, an encouraging and passionate tutor!

I am a first class honours Biomedical Science graduate from King`s College London currently in my 2nd year of Medical school. During my earlier studies I gained 4 A*-As in the International baccalaureate in 6th form and 11A*-A at GCSE level. I believe in making learning engaging and interactive, because succeeding is a little less challenging when we are doing something we enjoy. Instead of allowing my students to view studying as a chore, I believe in cultivating their unique passion for learning and education. In doing so, I believe that my students can then go on to progress even further long after our sessions. Being a current student who is fresh in the education system, I feel I can bring this unique and fresh insight into my teaching styles that I as a student find to be invaluable.

I have 4 years professional experience tutoring, tutoring students from the ages of 9-16 in Mathematics and the sciences.

I hope to work with my students to bring out the best in them, both academically as well as teaching them invaluable life skills they can continue to use in the future.
