Methodology

I am an enthusiastic and passionate individual who loves learning and reading. Throughout my studies I have been aided by several personal tutors and would not have made it this far without their support and teaching. Therefore I would very much like to take the opportunity to take what I have learned and give back that support to others, so they may then achieve their goals.

I typically go through the students module content providing in depth solutions to the problems and thus preparing them for the problems which as most likely to appear on their examinations.

Background

I have been teaching a month now and am truly enjoying being apart of my students lives, being happy when they succeed because it is also my success and would be truly disappointed if they failed.
therefore I try my hardest to teach them everything that I think could be required.
