Hi there, if you have read my page and think that I can be of any help to you please don't hesitate to contact me. It would be helpful if you could have some details of what in particular you would like help with when you get in contact. - Which subject(s) do you teach? I can teach standard grade Human Biology, Maths and Chemistry. I can also teach Higher and Advanced Higher Human Biology.
As a tutor, I take the same approach that I aspired my tutors to take, when I was a student. This means a lot of student interactions, starting from the fundamentals and then moving on. I aim to involve the student a lot in the subject, by giving them routine home tasks. I find it very interesting giving lessons to Secondary and Highers students.
I can teach up to advanced higher level, or sometimes higher. Tailoring my lessons around the needs of the student, I take time to understand a students difficulties before providing the right work and motivation to eradicate their previous weakness.
I base my classes on student needs and try to use the expeditionary learning method to help understand some difficult aspects. I believe working on questions is really important for understanding the science, and have my own techniques for remembering harder content.
My method includes deriving the formulae used and breaking down complex theory into simpler blocks. I then show examples of how the theory is applied in reality. To give a comprehensive background to chemistry theory, I can support chemical theory with biological, physical and mathematical theory.
My lessons are for any student right from primary 1 up to university level. For the younger students I prefer to use visual aids thus making the problems more practical so that the student can get a better understanding of the problem and how to solve it . As for the older students, I make emphasis on practicing questions and drawing diagrams.
I am a very patient person who is never defeated so if a student does not understand immediately how to approach a problem I give them the tools to work through the problem and with patience.
Friendly and interactive lessons using a wide range of resources. I am happy to travel to your home. I give continued online support between lessons.
I have a PhD in Genetics and following an academic research career, I have more recently been self-employed as a private tutor, coaching local (Aberdeen, Scotland) primary and secondary students in person on a 1 to 1 or small group (2-3 students) basis. I also tutor students online who prefer this mode of coaching or are not in the immediate vicinity.
“Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.” - Albert Einstein. The above quotation was my inspiration to become a scientist. I base my lessons on training a student's mind to think and come up with solutions and beyond the idea of going to school and learning just facts.
I like to adapt my teaching style to tailor it to each student's needs
Whenever possible, I really on an interactive, multi disciplinary method of teaching. Studies have shown that making information personally relevant leads to faster learning and long term memory. This method is proven the best especially for children that have trouble concentrating and paying attention in the conventional classroom.
I treat every learner as an individual, so I adapt lessons to suit their needs. Flexibility is key in adapting a session to best suit the learner, so that they are able to get the best out of every session. It is reaching their academic goal that I keep in mind when approaching every session.
My teaching method involves more interactive session where student will through practical models and understanding the subject will be easy.
I approach all my teaching visually. I feel that I learn best when I can see/read the problem in front of me and therefore I have adopted this into my teaching style. I will use real world examples and simplify problems until the fundamentals are understood before moving on to complex questions.
I explain the concepts and formulas first and then problems in a categorised manner, so the student can be easily understand and build with the complexity of problems. Always provide sufficient number of examples, and I also give supplementary handy notes material.
My teaching method is to ensure the student understands the content given through diagrams or other suitable methods and then go through questions with the student to consolidate their understanding and show how their knowledge can be adapted to answering exam style questions
I am a current student at University of Aberdeen, I am French and therefore can teach in both English and French. I studied the International Baccalaureate (IB). I am most confident with teaching high school students (year 8-12). I prefer to teach around practising a lot as I believe this is the way to assimilate lessons.
I wouldn't say that I have a specific teaching method. Teaching would depend on the student, their ability and their current understanding of the subject matter. I believe teaching students to learn independently is vitally important.
My teaching methods is mostly in lectures and discussions mode.
I personally prefer to work on the topics my pupil finds the hardest, once those topics are explained in detail and fully understood, I would then move onto the other easier topics on the syllabus. I find this method most effective because it eliminates the fear from the subject from the onset, there's nothing worse than running away from the topics that you feel are your weakest.
I am a creative teacher & love giving real life examples to make mathematics a fun loving and easy to learn subject. Being a postgraduate student, I have studied Chemistry and Math to a good level and I love to impart the basics to primary, secondary and undergraduate students. Methods of instruction can be through lectures, presentations or video calls.
I can firstly explain required topics to the student, and then use examples and exercises to ensure student's full understanding. Most of the work is student's job - he is the one who needs to understand, I can just navigate his/her thoughts to reach the highest level of understanding and to achieve necessary goals.
I like to approach a problem in simple sections. Sectioning helps build up a whole picture much more easily. I apply this method in my teaching. Illustrations with basic day-to-day experiences is one of my favourite tools.
As a current Advanced Higher student I am familiar with the current National 5 and Higher Chemistry/Maths qualification structures. I am able to use my own personal experiences and familiarity with the course content in order to create the most effective lesson plans.
I love to make learning fun for my learners by relating to topics being taught to real life scenarios to make learning easy and fun
Every student is different. I tend to use various learning techniques upon learning more about the students strength and weaknesses.
My teaching method is to first have a discussion with the student about the topics they need to work on, and to gain an understanding of the type of tutoring they require, i.e a rigorous proof based method, or the minimum needed to pass an exam. I can then construct the sessions based on this.
- Which subject(s) do you teach? I teach French (my mother language), maths and biological sciences (including chemistry). I try to make everything fun and enjoyable. - Tell me about your qualifications. Pharmacology degree. Currently in my Honours year (4th year). - How much do you charge? I charge £20 per hour.
The firs thing I also do is to spot the weaknesses of my student and try to strengthen them. In this way the self confidence of the student in that subject improves.
