My teaching method is one that ensures the student receives maximum benefit from the classes. I create a relaxed environment where the student is encouraged to ask questions and drive the sessions to cater to their own queries and needs. I approach topics by having materials to assist the different types of learners, whether they are visual, auditory or kinesthetic: often incorporating all 3 to ensure that the student fully understands the subject. Having been a shy, but driven pupil in my early school days I make sure my students appreciate that it is perfectly acceptable to not understand certain topics, but with determination we will be able to overcome any subject areas they are struggling with.
I am a second year medical student at St George's University of London. I have been a Biology mentor for students at school. I also have experience running my own science and language after school teaching clubs for 2 years.
Despite being based in Gravesend, I can also travel anywhere in London for a slightly higher fee.
