My Approach to Private Tuition

Every student is different and every student has different requirements. It is the responsibility of the tutor to tailor lessons and tuition accordingly. If there is one method of learning that works for one student it may not work for another. I believe that it is my job as a tutor to personalise learning as much as possible, catering to each student’s respective needs. Especially with language acquisition, methods can be somewhat dull and tailoring learning to specific interests is a useful way to engage students when tackling the more intricate and problematic aspects of grammar and syntax in a foreign language.
