My tutoring approach
I understand that students learn in various ways, so I try to structure my tutorials to suit individual needs. Generally however, I strive for a friendly and relaxed atmosphere and sometimes take a non-conventional approach towards learning especially where the tougher concepts are concerned. I like my students to ask "why?". I believe that true subject mastery comes from understanding the why's and anyone can attain it.
I implore hands-on techniques where applicable and encourage participation and thought-provoking discussion. I also make use of feedback mechanisms which can include tests or assignments (formal or informal) to assess understanding and progress. I give assignments occasionally to check understanding.
Ultimately, my goal is an environment where learning can be just that without seeming to give a headache after it and students can obtain mastery over their fears.

Tutoring experience: 6+ years
I have worked as a professional tutor since 2010 to many youth, mostly 11-20 year olds. Although, I have also had many younger tutees who have prepared for SATS and 11+ entrance exams and excelled.
I have been tutoring online for the past 3 years. I am self-employed with my own tutoring platform helping teenagers to meet and exceed their exam aspirations.
The average duration of tuition with a client is an academic year, with most of my tutees still opting for tuition after they had progressed academically.
I coach them with their studies, assignments and in preparation for examinations. My style of tutoring is heavily dependent on the personality of my student - I adapt to fit your learning style. I develop understanding but focus a lot of attention on mastering exam technique also.
