My teaching method is based on a sound coaching philosophy. It's one thing to teach knowledge and understanding to pass an exam, but it takes something different to develop the skills to apply that knowledge in an effective and meaningful way. My methods include Socratic questioning and constraints based coaching.

I take a personalised approach to tuition, so my method with each student is tailored to suit their learning style and strengths. I like to be clear about why my student is wanting tuition, and what he or she wants to get from it, and I will regularly check and update this conversation.
As a tutor and demonstrator for the University of Edinburgh I have found many students struggle to understand abstract concepts and struggle with teachers offering only one way of explaining things. My best quality as a teacher is my ability to find examples, metaphors and different ways to explain concepts so they become understandable for all students.
