We all differ in intelligence, but intelligence can be changed through sustained hard work. And great tutors motivate their students to work hard by way of their expert subject knowledge, careful preparation, high expectations, friendly rapport – and good measures of common sense and human kindness. My approach to tutoring begins with a candid assessment of a student’s strengths, as well...

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...

I believe one-on-one tutoring can be a fantastic experience for a student to get the extra educational support they deserve. Every lesson is created for each individual pupil’s needs, and I try to make the lessons as engaging as possible. It is important that not only knowledge is being built up during these sessions, but confidence too. As a person I...

‘I like to approach education as something far beyond the learning of facts and figures. I want to focus on helping students think beyond the usually very limited confines of a curriculum syllabus and introduce them to the kind of questions that will stimulate their love - and in turn, proficiency - for a subject. The kind of...

I am a firm believer that to do well in a subject, a student needs to feel passionate about it. As a result, I encourage students to wholeheartedly enjoy the subjects I am tutoring them in. Whether it be by using rhyme to tackle a difficult French grammatical rule or a silly anecdote to remember that important historical date, I...

Getting to know my student is key to having success in the tuition programme. Tailoring my lessons to ensure they speak to a pupil, whatever age, on a personal level is crucial to academic achievement. Whether it’s putting a maths problem into a visual format or using the natural environment to develop descriptive skills, I aim to bring the subject...

I see tuition for arts subjects as different from maths or sciences; there’s no right or wrong answer, and tuition should not be about a tutor telling you how to do something – it just won’t work. Once you understand an area of study – whether it’s a novel, a poem, a historical controversy – you develop genuine opinions, from...
