I am a Physics student and a sailing instructor. I would be delighted to help young minds develop, especially in the sciences. My method is flexible since different people learn in different ways. A typical lesson would include taking a topic, breaking it up into smaller parts, teaching the understanding to a higher level (e.g teach a GCSE student basic Alevel principles to help the GCSE 'click') and then teach how to answer a question so the most marks are picked up in an exam. I also have a whole host of revision techniques.
I have been teaching sailing mostly as well as helping tutor 6 of my friends' siblings. All of my sailing students have achieved the level they set out to achieve. The 6 students all found the topics I helped them with much easier after a lesson or two.
If I can avoid taking the bus I will and the cost of travel will be free. You can cancel at any point up to 48 hours before the lesson. If you cancel after that, you still have to pay the lesson fee and the £5 travel cost.
