While practice makes perfect, I believe smart practice brings about better learning and recall. For example, after finishing a past year paper, I would take the time to discuss with them their mistakes, rather than rush into the next paper. There is no going around the fact that math requires practice as a prerequisite. If their mistakes are careless, which is usually the case, I have tips that would help them curb it, provided they are willing to put in the effort.
I have been doing voluntary tutoring for 2 years now, teaching math to Rohingya refugees kids over the summer. It was a class of 20 students, and they all passed their final math exam with relatively better grades. It was one my fondest memories, and I hope to recreate that success with other students.
I am a medical student, who has a passion and penchant for tutoring.
1. Biology A-level
2. Math A-level
3. Basic - Advanced Mandarin
4. Basic - Intermediate French
Biology & Math A-level
I would gauge my student's understanding of the syllabus, and structure my course depending on how much independent learning he would need, as no student can improve without self-learning on top of tutoring. Past year papers would be integral to the learning process, but only after the core principals are fully understood.
French and Mandarin
After doing research about language and the best way to learn it, I have integrated what I have learned into my course structure, as that was how I learnt it as well. It would revolve around comprehensible input and contextual learning. For instance, using pictures to paint a better picture, and teaching them vocabulary based on situations, not by alphabetical order. Once they have reached a certain level (A2-B1), I will challenge them to form an opinion in that language, as well as write essays about different topics.
I will play a round with them to assess their level of understanding of openings, the middlegame and endgames, and adjust my course accordingly. I will look at their preferred playing style, we will decide on an opening and how to counter other ones. I enjoy playing chess for fun, so I hope to make it an enjoyable experience for all of us.
