My Approach to Private Tuition

As a classroom teacher, I know that the best teaching is tailored to the needs of the individual. I also know that, sadly, this isn’t always possible at school. I therefore adapt my tutoring to each tutee, making sure that they are always both engaged and challenged.

Being in the classroom each day means that I am constantly pushed to think of new, creative methods of teaching. I can then bring these dynamic approaches to my tutoring.
