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...

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 see private tuition like a personal and tailored educational support through which the student learns and develops until he/she becomes an independent thinker with the right ethos of work, one, which consists in passion, discipline, commitment, perseverance and resilience....

I was brought up in the French system which focuses on method and logical rigor. My sessions are therefore organized, and I usually set a program for each session, based on my tutee’s strengths and weaknesses.

Confidence and inquisitiveness are to my mind crucial in the learning process. Building confidence and inspiring inquisitiveness thus lie at the centre of all my teaching. I work with tutees to help them develop the skills needed to acquire and deploy knowledge in a given subject, as well as to know how to resolve an aspect of a subject which...

My aim as a private tutor is to understand the needs of my students, to clearly define learning objectives and to design stimulating activities to help them reach these goals.

I am passionate about teaching, because I think that passing on knowledge is always incredibly fulfilling. When I teach, I know that I can help others understand concepts that I have mastered. One of my most satisfactory teaching experiences and one that illustrates my approach to tutoring is when I helped my younger cousin improve her English language performance and...

I strongly hold that before any progress can be made, the tutee must realise that they are not alone. Getting to know my tutees - what drives and inspires them when they are at their most relaxed - is integral to enabling them to become motivated learners. It is my role to be there to encourage each step of the...
