I think the most important part of my job is getting to know each tutee on an individual basis, as I try to teach according to each tutee’s needs and personal learning styles. I recognise that everyone learns in different ways and furthermore that at school it is often difficult for students to receive the attention and help that they may require. I therefore see it as my job to find out for each tutee what style of teaching they would find most engaging, and to take them through their school work in a more exciting and hopefully much more beneficial way than they may have previously encountered. Ideally my tutees will discover that what they were being taught at school was a lot more interesting and exciting than they realised!

"You've really helped and boosted my confidence in the topics that I am studying. I understand the content a lot more than I did before and feel much more happier about going into History exams. Your well structured and paced teaching allows me to digest the information and I find that it sticks in my head a lot better. Thank you!"
