My Approach to Private Tuition
In most cases the goal of tuition is to achieve the highest grades possible for the individual student. I believe that the best way to do that is to teach how to answer exam questions, rather than teaching content alone. These two things are deceptively different and often trip students up on the day of the exam. In addition, I believe it is important to learn personal strategies to deal with issues of confidence, exam nerves and organization. My approach incorporates these things into each tutorial. Last but certainly not least, it’s important to me that my students enjoy their tutorials. This makes remembering the information learned much easier.
