My Passion & How I Inspire

“With students facing a barrage of tests and examinations, learning can all too quickly become an exercise in sculpting the model exam answer and nothing more. However, with a wealth of experience tutoring all ages and abilities, I truly understand the importance of students possessing passion for and genuine interest in their studies. As such, I strive to instil in individuals a boundless enthusiasm for their chosen subject so that it is the student that wishes to delve ever deeper and gain a more complete understanding of the topic in question. I structure my tuition sessions in a logical and interactive fashion such that students steadily grow in confidence until they are largely driving the direction and momentum of lessons. In addition, I seek to initiate and maintain an active dialogue with parents/ guardians so that they are made fully aware of progress made and how best they can support the student as strides are made towards their academic goals.”
