I believe in helping them to develop genuine skills that will enable them to answer any unexpected questions in their exams, which, as my brother and sister have recently discovered, is especially important with the new GCSEs. I tend to approach lessons by giving the pupil a particular problem, if it is one of the sciences, or otherwise a poem or historical source, and seeing how they go about trying to answer it. We can then work in a focused way from there.
I am pupil at Westminster school who has tutored friends' children in maths, English, history, and the sciences for GCSE, and they have gone on to do very well. Generally, I tend to focus on improving a pupil's understanding by targeting the basis of their knowledge rather than superficially explaining how to do just one question.
