I like to get to know my students, to determine how they learn best and what their strengths and weaknesses are and, most importantly establish a rapport with them. Although I always tailor my sessions to the individual needs of the students, I find that setting a goal to achieve by the end of each session is a good measure of progress so that both the student and I can see the improvement that has been made, highlight any areas that need revisiting and easily determine achievement. Making sessions both interesting and engaging is particularly important to me as I know that if a student is unstimulated, it can be tricky to focus. Above all, I know that it is vital to inspire my students to try to find the answer themselves, rather than simply relaying information to them. This, I think is more fulfilling for both of us and builds confidence in the student which is essential to independent learning.
