My Approach to Private Tuition

I like to establish a friendly and informal style of teaching, focusing on participation from students. I often ask questions and encourage the students to guess answers without being scared of getting it wrong because I believe the thought process behind trying to figure out an answer is important to remembering the correct answer when it is reached by the student or provided and explained by myself. I always bring real-life examples to topics to make facts and syllabus points more memorable, as well as frequently employing my trusty white-board for help with visualizations pf key concepts.
