My Passion And How I Inspire
Having had the good fortune to enjoy a first-class education, both at school and then at university, for me the best part about tutoring is having the opportunity to inspire a similar comfort and ease when it comes to learning in others. My first-hand experience of the competitive school and university entrance process has given me a wealth of invaluable knowledge and techniques about both systems that I enjoy imparting to my students.
I find it immensely rewarding to see a student’s work improve, and believe a key ingredient for progression is building up students’ confidence, and providing a stable environment in which they are not afraid to ask questions, making it possible to overcome whatever obstacles are affecting their learning.
