My Approach to Private Tuition

Generally speaking, I prefer an active learning style where the student would regularly interact with me through exercises, games and case studies so that they can clearly demonstrate that they are getting to grips with the topic. This is what worked for me during my school and uni days but I would also be happy to deliver a more passive style of tutoring if the student prefers. At the end of the session, I will summarise the content, check that the student understands it and introduce the topic of the next session. If appropriate, I will also set some exercises to do between the sessions.

Fun fact

I lived in Pakistan for 4 years with my family.
