My tutoring approach

I provide flexible personalised tuition sessions tailored to the individual needs of the student. After initial discussion with the student, on their perceived strengths and weaknesses, I will agree a programme of study to help improve their level of achievement in any identified weakness. Tutoring sessions could consist of intensive lessons covering topics that the student has identified. Sessions could involve intensive work on “past papers” and questions from the target examination board and syllabus. I help students work methodically step-by-step through questions/problems until they are confident, are able to solve problems themselves and are able to adapt the skills and techniques practised to new unfamiliar situations.
