I gauge a student's level of understanding and develop a teaching method suitable for them. I understand students learn in different ways, for example some students can just listen and grasp a concept while some students, like myself, are aided by a visual illustration. I analyse what kind of student you are and use the approach that best fits you.
Geophysics Graduate, current Geochemistry Masters student. I have been tutoring for about 5 years now. This includes tutoring for students getting ready for GCSE exams in my country Botswana, as well as voluntary tutoring mostly in languages abroad e.g. to an Orphanage in Malaysia. I have been (and still am) in school so I am in a good position to understand any student challenges and have accumulated an array of tactics for dealing with them. From study tips, to managing time I will be able to offer the best advice that has worked for me or that I have seen work for my fellow school mates or friends.
