Oxford Uni graduate, excellent qualifications, passionate about making students achieve their potential

Methodology

I deal with students' potential. I encourage their own creativity and give them the stimuli and guidance necessary for them to realise their own capacity for interpretation and eloquence. I help them understand the basics from a different perspective than those taught.

From my experience, I have discovered the best methodology is that which permits the students to dictate their own answers, as opposed to a learn by rote method which drip-feeds information students then have to struggle to memorise. By giving them the knowledge, explained visually and clearly, students can then use the ingrained knowledge they have acquired to piece together answers of their own accord. This makes answering and studying easier and quicker.

Experience

I studied History at St Edmund Hall college, University of Oxford and graduated this summer. I have tutored privately since I was nine, helping out especially in essay writing skills and critical thinking, as well as basic mathematics. I work well with both individuals and groups.

Paula has a unique ability to draw the poetry from any area of academia. She has an open mind that can delve into fresh topics and tackle problems from a dozen angles, but she is not so open-minded that her brain falls out.

I admire Paula for her perseverance and tenacity. From dance classes to academia, she works with diligence, and is highly motivated to support others. Compassionate, focused and precise, Paula is also excellent at explaining complex topics, as well as listening to and solving problems.
