My Approach to Private Tuition

By questioning I determine the student’s level of knowledge of a topic. Through discussion I expand their knowledge-base of the topic and test it through verbal and written work.  I show students the short-comings in their answers and encourage them to devise clearer answers that will produce the highest grade for a particular question.  I always work with a student to help them see what a question is looking for and what an ideal answer would look like. I work with their interests to make the material as stimulating as possible and I teach and encourage focused learning and study-skills.
