My Approach to Private Tuition

I view tuition as the opportunity to inspire a new generation of students to discover the same passion for science and mathematics as I have myself. I enjoy making a subject exciting and empowering individuals to realise their potential and understand that they have the ability to achieve great things.

I approach teaching by giving students the tools they need to solve problems. The most fun and rewarding way to learn is through practical experimentation and feeling the achievement of getting to a solution of a problem.

I really enjoy seeing my students achieve and gain confidence in their skills – a student’s success is shared with my own!

Performance is of high importance so I shall assess your knowledge of the syllabus or subject at hand, identify weaknesses, then go beyond the exam board or specification to produce the best results possible.
