My Approach to Private Tuition
I focus on developing the student’s understanding, confidence and engagement with the subject. We will concentrate on clarifying areas of the course you find difficult. We will also work on exam technique, as it is critical you apply your knowledge intelligently to achieve the highest grades.
I work with past papers a lot, as practice is the best way of building confidence. It’s also important to me that we feed your enthusiasm for the work, as this helps you continue to improve and develop original thinking.
My video Introduction
I learned to surf in Costa Rica, which was a beautiful experience. I’m still really bad at surfing, though.
