One to One Tuition
The great thing about 1 to 1 tuition is being able to work with each student in an individualised way. I can build the rapport that enables students to feel comfortable to say when they don’t understand and ask any questions they have. Tutoring sessions are informal and relaxed, and provide a very different learning environment to a school classroom.
My approach is always based on careful assessment of the student’s current level of achievement and diagnosis of any underlying conceptual difficulties impeding progress.
I also believe that confidence is key to academic success and helping students to see their own potential can enable dramatic improvements in performance. As a tutor it’s my role to provide clear explanations and break down concepts in a simple and straightforward way.
It’s also my job to help students to be able to genuinely enjoy the subjects.

The 1:1 format enables me to cover a lot of ground on the curriculum relatively rapidly, but I also ensure students get to tackle enough practice questions to consolidate their knowledge, drawing on a wide range of text books and online resources. I also make sure I provide regular revision, revisiting topics that have previously been covered. For students preparing for exams providing coaching in exam technique can make all the difference in getting the grade they require.
I also appreciate that some students perform better, or simply prefer to learn in a group environment. For this reason we offer group tuition in small groups of 2 to 6 students.
I support and encourage students to take ownership of their own learning, providing advice on study techniques and helping them to identify the areas where they most need help. I also communicate effectively with parents providing updates and being available to discuss progress in person, by phone or through email.
