My Approach to Private Tuition

Learning to pass exams is tedious, boring and exhausting, which makes it harder to do well in a subject; which makes it tedious, boring and exhausting. The way you approach a subject determines how well you grasp the foundations, and how much you enjoy engaging with it. I’m not merely interested in teaching you to pass exams, but to teach you how to think about a subject, in a way which makes it light and easy to excel in it. I believe there is always a “way in” for every student to love a subject. You just have to find it. Once you do find your way in, it will be light and engaging, which will make the subject easy to excel at, which will make it light and engaging. Everything is pattern recognition.

Fun fact

I once defeated a super computer in a 24-round game of “rock,paper,scissors”. I won $72 and a lifetime of bragging rights.
