I recently graduated a sixth form course, International Baccalaureate. When I was preparing for my exams, I found it very useful when the students who had recently completed their course were tutoring me. This meant them being close to me and having gone through the same experience recently. Therefore, I would like to help out the students who are also struggling with science and be that useful tutor that will give them support in their preparation.
I usually tutor the students by explaining the topics using analogies. Analogies help them understand the process better as it brings science to a simpler level. An organisation is my priority, the students will be asked to produce a folder with all their work. After covering each topic, their homework will be to do a past paper on the topic. Answering the questions reinforces their memory and sends it to the long term memory.
I have not worked as a paid tutor. However, while doing the IBdp course, I volunteered in our school as a science and maths tutor.
I have taught 7 students, GCSE-IB level. Using my own notes helped me make the subjects easier to understand. Moreover, I don't like one-way teaching. It is usually interactive. After explaining something, I ask the student questions about it, to make sure they understood it. If not, I explain in a different way and try to find an approach that is suitable for them.
