I think of tutoring like a conversation (the fancy educationalist word is ‘dialogic), and that exchange starts before we meet. After speaking with the family I ask for writing samples before our first session so I can perform a diagnostic exercise and assess strengths, weaknesses and potential objectives. Each session is then structured around developing close reading and analytical skills...

“I always bear in mind that every student is different. I start by assessing their needs and ability. We then kick off. I identify areas where they need help and provide an intuitive understanding of the concepts. We then work together to produce revision notes using diagrams, colours or visual aids- whatever works. We then practice the techniques and concepts...

My approach to private tuition is very much the same as my thorough teaching within the classrooms of the four independent schools I have had the pleasure of working in: create very clear, tangible goals for each of my students with a dash of good Northern humour and kindness to truly bring their self-confidence and ambitions to the surface. I...

When teaching science and maths I stress the overlap and interconnectedness of the different disciplines. I find this helps abstract concepts to fall into perspective, makes everything less daunting when you realise that the same principles feature in so many different topics and ultimately stands the student in better stead when grappling with unfamiliar territory. My interest in the history...

I will first identify how you study best, whether it is visually, aurally, kinetically, or logically – because knowing that will allow me to customize our classes to suit you. For example, if you’re a kinetic learner, we will build models together. And if you’re an aural learner, then we’ll burst into a song every now and then (it’s shown...

I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson. I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key...

Since I taught my first class to undergraduates at Princeton, I have greatly enjoyed helping students explore what they love about Classics. Tutoring gives me the opportunity to find out what motivates and inspires the people I work with, and it’s a real privilege to build a rapport one on one and facilitate their learning. I tailor my approach to...

The human condition has always been of utmost importance to me, and this led to my relentless questioning of why people’s circumstances are so dissimilar in different parts of the world. My understanding of who I am and what to do with my life has been profoundly shaped by geography. The stark difference in standard of living, development and well-being...

As an individual, I am enthusiastic, determined and a real ‘people person’. Having sat exams every year for the past 8 years, and continuing to do so I feel I am immersed in the challenges of modern academia and this will serve as a real advantage in my approach to my tutees. I think different approaches are required depending on...

I want to instil confidence in my students, so in time, they will want to challenge themselves to develop their skills further – discovering the joy of learning! Doing this in a supported and safe environment allows the student to push themselves in ways they might not have thought possible, allowing them to be more versatile and prepared for whatever...
