My Approach to Private Tuition
My approach is a patient but enthusiastic method where I focus on the students strengths as a motivator to improve. I like to see the capabilities in each individual and use this to elevate the student to work on any weaknesses.
My interest in Economics comes from Zimbabwean heritage where the economic climate is a very interesting one in the very least. From hyperinflation to the impact of politics on the stability of the economy, I can help my tutees to really see the application of economics and hence cement their theoretical understanding.
Above everything I just have a lot of faith in the fact that everyone has potential to succeed, it’s just accessing and channeling that potential!
My video Introduction
“Varaidzo’s tutoring was fantastic. She was prompt, patient, nurturing and enthusiastic towards my son learning. Both my son and I have enjoyed the experience as her interaction and communication skills are geared towards the child’s needs, and as a result my sons confidence has been enhanced. Thank you Varaidzo” – 22/09/15
I once auditioned for Junior Mastermind and got to the final stage but didn’t get through!
