My Approach to Private Tuition
As entrance to top universities, sixth forms and schools has become increasingly competitive, the need to stand out has become crucial. As such, my approach to tutoring is individualized, client focused and ensures my students achieve at the highest level. I work carefully to identify the needs of my tutees and devise appropriate work schedules and plans in order to realize their goals. Utilizing the students syllabus and examples of their work I identify any issues that may hold my tutee back, helping them cultivate the skills necessary to ensure their improvement. I work to develop key critical faculties with my students, securing their ability to achieve across the board, whilst promoting their broader intellectual growth. I ensure that my lessons are creative, thought provoking and engaging to inspire the best results and development in my students.
I love climbing mountains and have done so from the craggy shores of North Wales through to Indian Himalayas, arid Tanzania and the Jungles of Malaysian Borneo.
