I believe every student is different, and tutoring approaches need to be adjusted accordingly.
I believe it is very important to learn using fun, intuitive and practical techniques, and to create study techniques that work for you, so that you have a base to stand on and possibly have less difficulties studying without the help of a tutor in the future.
My focus for A-level studies is exam preparation, and going beyond the course material to actually know what examiners are looking for and what is the best way to reach a high grade.
Tutoring year 5/6 students during secondary school on various subjects such as Mathematics and History (more of a support system, students would bring the subjects they were having difficulties at the moment, part of a volunteering project in my school)
Tutoring small groups of undergraduate year 1 students as part of an informal project during my last term at uni: subjects like microeconomics, statistics and accounting.
I am also a frequent “tutor” within my group of friends and university study groups. I enjoy helping others in their areas of difficulty when these overlap my stronger fields and finding ways of making course subjects more appealing to others.
