I believe the three most valuable tools in a scientific education are understanding, logic and independence. They've served me well so far in exams, and they've fostered a real love of the sciences in me! Here's a quick rundown of my teaching philosophy:
Firstly, I always avoid memorising facts where I can; understanding a concept is far more powerful than remembering the answer. In cases where recall is required, I'll teach you how to revise effectively.
Once understanding is in place, logic can be used to work through a relevant problem methodically. I never liked using 'shortcut' methods, so we'll avoid these until your understanding is such that you stumble upon them naturally.
Finally, I won't lecture these ideas to you. We'll go through them together at a pace that ensures you understand the material, so that you can talk yourself through it without me.
