I am a year 13 sixth form student currently studying chemistry biology and psychology. I teach biology at any level up until AS, and psychology AS.
When I teach I try to engage with the student and decipher their difficulties in order to tackle them directly. I try to find methods of understanding or explaining the given topic in a way different than what is taught in class. Everyone can understand something, they just require an alternative route to do that.
I try to help them visualise the scenario and give them examples they can relate to.
And after I feel they're ready, I give them a series of questions to see whether they've absorbed the given information or not.
I am patient and willing to explain things multiple times and differently if I have to. I feel that by teaching I am also learning the content better, so if a student can't understand something, then by trying to make them understand it causes me to break the given thing down even further than I ever have. Which of course will always benefit the tutor as well as the student.
I am eager to teach and help anyone, and only ask that the student I teach is respectful, open minded, and eager to learn. Because without that, delivering information is quite impossible.
As a student, I have always been the one to help out several people who still didn't understand the content the day before the exam.
I was and still am happy to offer my help to anyone, and those who experience it typically request it again.
Those students who received my tuition were able to achieve higher grades than before, and were able to solve questions they typically would have left blank.
I've taught many people in school, but this is my first time teaching someone outside of it. Nevertheless, it shouldn't be any different.
