Teaching Experience

I am a firm believer that the key to academic success is different for every student; there are no set boundaries or  teaching methods which apply to every child. Therefore, I strive to help each one of my pupils find an approach to learning that is tailored to them as an individual in order to attain the best results possible. Through my teaching I aim to build a solid foundation on which I can work on increasing the self-confidence of my students in order to invigorate their approach to all aspects of the academic curriculum. My ultimate goal as a tutor is to illuminate the strengths of my tutees and, most importantly, to encourage them to approach their weaknesses with fearless determination rather than the worry of ‘getting it wrong’. By adopting this attitude, I am positive that any weakness will be improved in no time! At school and university, I found that the most rewarding results are achieved when one applies oneself to the task at hand with enthusiasm, a level head and hard-work – a philosophy which I hope my pupils, like me, will come to carry with them both in and out of the classroom.

Biography

I am a professional tutor alongside working as an actor while living in London. The nature of my work enables me to have a flexible schedule in which I am able to commit myself wholeheartedly to my time as a tutor. I am confident in teaching a number of subjects to GCSE and A Level and from my own experience, feel capable in teaching children with dyslexia. I enjoy having the opportunity to provide a supportive role for my students as we work together to spark an enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge!
