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...

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 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...

As a tutor, I am dedicated to establishing a learning environment in which a student can feel relaxed, take enjoyment from study, and, perhaps most importantly, grow in confidence, both personally and academically. I strive to turn learning into an immensely positive experience, aiming to locate academic areas in which a student might be struggling, before working through issues as...

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...

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 care deeply about helping people to develop confidence in their ideas and their imaginative capacities and recognise that many of these pivotal moments happen whilst we are still in education. As a practicing artist I know how moving from tender beginnings of ideas into manifesting artworks requires real courage and commitment. Having someone someone you can trust in to...

In all subjects, I encourage active involvement, and aim to make the process as enjoyable as possible. Private tuition is a unique opportunity to benefit from a one on one learning environment, a form of learning that should be enjoyable, challenging and help a student develop a passion for their subject. It is important to create a positive learning environment...

I am an enthusiastic, caring, and motivational teacher: I inspire my students to fulfil their potential. As a tutor, it is incredibly fulfilling watching your students develop their skills, gain self-confidence and achieve their goals. For me, the key to good tuition begins with establishing a nurturing environment, as I aim to build a student's confidence, and encourage them to...
