I take a very grounded and personable approach to tutoring. I always work to get to know and build a relationship with the pupil. I like hearing about their work at school and about their extracurricular activities & interests. This approach encourages students to open up and trust me. As a result, I can help them achieve their goals more easily.
I have a wealth of different materials and worksheets available, but I am also able to quickly devise questions to develop, test and improve specific weaknesses in topics. I use state of the art video conferencing and interactive whiteboard technology when tutoring online, which is very accessible for young people.
My focus is always on encouraging the student to achieve to the very best of their ability, and urging them to have a happy, positive attitude whilst doing so. I enjoy working with students over longer periods of time to properly identify their specific shortcomings and to fully address these.
