My Approach to Private Tuition

My approach to tuition is at once focused on securing the top grades in my subject areas and crafting lessons that actively engage my students in fun and creative ways. I will tailor my lessons to the syllabus of the relevant exam board, but will also challenge my students by including source material outside the syllabus that will distinguish top essays and written answers from merely good ones. At the same time, I will use past papers to hone exam methodology and approaches.
