My Passion And How I Inspire
My passion came from my educational and wider experiences. I have always found people, groups and behaviour fascinating and learning theories to attempt to explain human behaviour is incredible interesting. Since first reading about psychology at 14 years old it has continued to excite my interest.
Being a tutor is a true passion of mine, I have taken any opportunity available to teach and I continue to enjoy it. I believe everyone deserves the best education available to them, and tutoring is a great way to enable this. Tutoring helps me pass on the knowledge I have gained throughout my academia and inspire others through their education. Seeing students progress in their education is extremely rewarding and motivates me to continue to tutor.
I try to inspire my students by bringing my passion and enthusiasm to lessons. Preparing exciting and interactive lessons gives the student a more active role in the session and allows them to express themselves. I aim to learn about the student so I can base lessons on the type of teaching they respond to, whilst bringing in different materials to keep their interest.
