Teaching Experience

I make it my mission to help students develop a love and a sincere interest in what they are studying. Once a student enjoys and appreciates the knowledge they are acquiring it makes it much easier for them to reach the best of their ability. I aim to do this via a charismatic teaching style, in which I attempt to pass on the love I have for these subjects on to them. I also make sure I am comprehensively informed on the marking criteria for each exam the student is sitting. I constantly demonstrate, throughout my lessons, exactly how students should structure the content they are learning in order to receive top marks. By the time it gets to exam period, I ensure it has become second nature for my students to write their answers to questions in the exact format that is required. I want students to approach their studies with real confidence. When a student believes they have the skills and the understanding to tackle the work in front of them they perform to a much higher standard. Thus, I aim to locate their weak spots, drastically improve them and, subsequently, eradicate any self-doubt they previously had.

Biography

I have been a professional tutor alongside both my undergraduate and postgraduate degree. I was also a lead mentor for the charity Debate Mate, which involved teaching struggling students, from underprivileged backgrounds, the art of debating. I have now finished my degree and am in the process of starting an online business, which has an environmental purpose. The nature of working for myself means that I have a very flexible schedule and can devote time to my students.
