When I meet a new student, I use the first one or two sessions to explore the issue at hand with the student – whether it’s a specific trouble spot or more general tuition in advance of an exam. I then use this information to ease through the trouble spot with the student, working to address the root of the problem rather than a topical fix. When faced with exam preparation, I work with the student to understand the mentality and thought process required to tackle the questions featured on the exam. My approach to private tuition is wholly individualised and based on the student’s needs – and of course, to make it fun!
In addition to a Master’s Degree in Education, I worked in Sweden as a ESL tutor for Swedish students between the ages of 11-12.
