    My Passion And How I Inspire

    Communication is an essential aspect of the learning process. To know both students’ expectations and their approaches to learning are fundamental to support them for getting their goal. The first thing I do as a tutor is to talk with my students what aspects they want to improve or learn more about. Secondly, it is important to find out her/his approach for studying. Sometimes, students have not found their best approach for learning. Sometimes, they recognise to study a lot for an exam but do not get the grade they expected. So, it is fundamental to support students to discover which approach of learning is the best for them. It is to support them to use studying time efficiently. Finally, I try to develop an interactive lesson, in which the student has an active role, questioning and thinking critically about what she/he is learning.
