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 work together with the student and their parents in identifying the areas in which they require help. Such close collaboration enables me to me structure the tutorial, link it to the syllabus and make it effective in terms of exam preparation. But, most importantly, it helps me make the learning process as fun as possible! During...

I first became passionate about writing in Year 8 when I began to see my writing improve from using basic connectives. Suddenly, I felt in control of my words and it became easier to interpret different view points and analyse varying interpretations. This gave me confidence in a lot of subjects as I started my GCSEs. More specifically, I began...

Across all of the different subjects I teach, I always notice the same thing: the main difficulty that learners encounter is getting overwhelmed by what they're trying to learn. It could be that there seems to be simply too much material to cover; it could be that the concepts seem too difficult; it could be that the whole thing causes...

My approach to tutoring focuses on igniting students’ interest and engagement while making lessons as enjoyable as possible. I start by identifying the specific needs of each student, then tailor lessons in order to directly meet those needs and help students maximise their potential while their understanding and confidence grows....

My approach to tuition is to encourage a deep understanding of the course content, instead of learning a list of facts or how to pass the exam. I do this by trying to explain how the concepts fit within previous knowledge, how it’s applied in the real world and why it’s important that we understand it. Every student learns differently,...

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...

“I aim to make learning fun whilst also ensuring fast and effective progress. I ensure that I get to know my students' ways of learning as soon as possible in order to tailor my tutoring style to their individual needs. I hope to be able to offer a way of learning different but utterly beneficial to the current exam syllabuses...

Although I believe that it is important to tailor my approach to the needs of every particular student, I like to use an interactive Cambridge-style method of tutoring. Instead of giving outright answers to my students, I pose questions in order to navigate them through the relevant issue to a logical conclusion. This way, my students feel the sense of...

The first thing I do is listen to the student to find out their language level and also, how confident they are in their speaking. Some people are shy and don't realise how good they are! The next thing I do is ask them 'how do you like to learn?'. Some people prefer a very structured environment with exercises and...
