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....

I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson. I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key...

Seyi

The human condition has always been of utmost importance to me, and this led to my relentless questioning of why people’s circumstances are so dissimilar in different parts of the world. My understanding of who I am and what to do with my life has been profoundly shaped by geography. The stark difference in standard of living, development and well-being...

As an individual, I am enthusiastic, determined and a real ‘people person’. Having sat exams every year for the past 8 years, and continuing to do so I feel I am immersed in the challenges of modern academia and this will serve as a real advantage in my approach to my tutees. I think different approaches are required depending on...

I want to instil confidence in my students, so in time, they will want to challenge themselves to develop their skills further – discovering the joy of learning! Doing this in a supported and safe environment allows the student to push themselves in ways they might not have thought possible, allowing them to be more versatile and prepared for whatever...

Interaction, debate and discussion. Law and the other subjects I teach, are by their very nature, contentious. It is essential to understand the debates inherent in the subject. I believe that with discussion and interaction even the most difficult areas of subjects become understandable. I approach private tuition by confronting the debates and flexibility of perspectives in subjects, allowing students...
