My Approach to Private Tuition

I believe in creating a personalised, engaging and supportive tutoring experience for tutees.

It’s no secret that different students learn different ways and test best using different strategies. A huge part of understanding how a student thinks is to listen carefully. However, part of tutoring is showing students things about themselves that they might not have previously realised. This means taking an experimental approach to tuition for each student, using metrics to constantly guide and refine the development of the tuition plan. If a new test strategy or method of learning content works poorly, then it gets abandoned. If it works well, I help the student build on that natural talent.

Student engagement is integral to the learning process. I have a problem set focused teaching approach and use leading questions to walk students through problems. Moreover, I have a background in applying science, maths and English in real-world settings. I try to leverage this background to communicate the importance of these subjects to students’ future success. I also seize opportunities to communicate just how powerful and incredible these subjects can be.

Young students in particular need a tutor that is really there for them, beyond just the study materials. To me, this means: being patient, personally investing in tutees, and helping them believe in themselves and their abilities.
