My Passion And How I Inspire
I feel that the key to success at GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate level is answering the question directly.
In order to do this the student first needs to have a solid knowledge base and then needs to tailor this knowledge base to the questions they are being asked. When I teach I aim to develop the student`s knowledge base whilst at the same time encouraging them to think how this knowledge may be applicable to the questions they will be asked in their exams.
I try to create an enjoyable learning environment for the student by being patient and friendly and explaining topics in a clear manner.
