Teaching Approach/Style

I am a passionate tutor, committed to making the learning experience enjoyable and meaningful.

Developing constructive working relationships is key to unlocking true potential. I believe patience, understanding and flexibility of approach are key qualities in effective tutoring; as is the ability to listen. By getting to know and understand the tutee. I develop methods of learning in a safe and comfortable environment, engaging them and helping them to master the subject and achieve strong results. I also recognise the vital role and valuable insights provided by parents/guardians in the learning process; they receive regular feedback on progress.

My aim is to awaken and extend the intellectual curiosity of my tutees, encouraging them to learn and discover independently. Studying bite-size pieces of literature, for instance, as rewarding as it may be, can also help to target any weaknesses in the students understanding of grammar, vocabulary and syntax.

My sessions can also include preparation for exams (GSCE, A-Levels, University and Language Certification) as well as tutoring adults for professional and cultural purposes. I tutor all ages up to and including university students. I am qualified and experienced in SEN students.
