In my tutor sessions the interaction of the student is extremely important. I aim to create a relaxed environment where students can ask questions and attempt answers without fear of embarrassment. During sessions I ask students questions to test depth of understanding and set written problems to apply knowledge. Since everyone learns differently I tailor my sessions to meet each individuals needs. Students can expect structured and well-prepared sessions where a learning objectives are identified and worked towards.

'We have been extremely impressed of the tuition my daughter has received from Ross. Maria found the sessions enjoyable and has gone on to achieve grades we did not believe were possible. We are grateful for all his hard work and would recommend his services to anyone' - Luara (Previous tutees parent).
"Ross has been such a good reliable tutor since Day 1. He effectively assessed our daughter's school work, level of capability and aspirations on the first session, and then produced an action plan with her to achieve everything she wanted to do. His methods of teaching such as flash cards and exam questions practice has given our daughter much more confidence, and her grades at school have improved immensely."
