My Approach to Private Tuition
The reason I believe I am good at tutoring is that I simply enjoy working with students in a 1-to-1 setting, no two students are the same and this makes every day different and interesting. Seeing students flourish over time with my tutoring support makes me feel proud and is greatly rewarding. Being able to have such a positive impact and influence on the education of a child is something you do not get with any other job and provides a great deal of joy. Furthermore, I enjoy building a rapport with the family and getting to know them. This creates the best environment in my view, as it builds trust and allows efficient two-way communication between myself and the client. My philosophy is that tutoring is not just about teaching, it is about building confidence, knowledge and providing the children with life skills for the present and future.
My strengths as a tutor include having fantastic communication and organisation skills, alongside a patient approach. My ability to adapt and be versatile, according to the child’s learning style, is another key characteristic that I have. My students make progress because I build their knowledge up, starting with the basics and moving upwards. I provide homework that reinforces what is taught in lesson and always provide examples, thus they always have information to look back on for revision purposes. I also conduct mini-tests every few months to ensure the student is on track. This highlights any topics that need to be revisited. Furthermore, I go through exam papers with students and highlight methods to ensure maximum marks are achieved.
