Methodology

Initially, lessons focus on identifying weakness and areas for growth. This allows me to create a lesson plan for the coming sessions, which I then discuss with the student and their guardians to ensure their approval of the plan. I have found that confidence is often at the root of students difficulties. Whether this is a lack of confidence in understanding the material, in writing, or approaching exam style questions. I believe it is first essential to build up a students understanding of the material. Next, we can move onto understanding the format of exams and how questions will be presented to ensure that the student is able to maximise their potential in an exam setting. In the run up to exams we will complete a number of exam style questions to gain confidence and gauge how time pressures affect the students ability. Finally, in the days leading up to the exam, we will focus on time management and how to deal with the stress that exam conditions give us all. Progress is therefore not measured by my giving an exam or essay question every session, as this kind of 'academic rigour' can be off-putting and lead to a fall in confidence. However, tangible markers of growth and success are useful and this is something we can work out on an individual basis. I will measure progress by how comfortable the student feels with the material, the fluency with which they are able to convey their ideas and eventually how well they are able to express these in an essay format.

Experience

I have been tutoring for over two years. I have had five students across GCSE and IB level tutoring English and History. My students were generally performing poorly in English before our lessons, largely due to a lack of confidence. Together, we were able to boost their grades from 3s and 4s to 6s, 7s, and 9s. Over the last three years I have studied international politics and have enjoyed it immensely, I wish to be able to impart that same enjoyment onto my students. When you enjoy a subject it becomes easier to understand and focus on, this is something I have directly experienced as I chose a topic I enjoy for my dissertation, eventually winning the award for the best undergraduate dissertation.
