I have 12+ year experience of teaching the National Curriculum on a one-to-one basis. Currently, I am tutoring different year groups children including SATS (KS1, KS2 & KS3), 7+, 8+ and 11+ Entrance Exam preparation. I also mentor adults to grasp ‘Functional skills’.
I recognise the importance of having a good sense of humour to establish a rapport with the children and to take a positive approach in establishing good behaviour. I adapt different methods of teaching depending on the needs and abilities of the child. Parents are made aware of the child progress after every lesson because I believe in learning whilst caring and sharing.
Developing students’ full potential
Every student deserves the chance to reach the full potential of their talents and abilities. There are times, however, when normal school lessons and a large classroom environment are not sufficient to allow this to happen. I identify the student’s current level and the difficulties they are experiencing in the topic we are going to start working on and define the learning objectives for the session so that students have a clear idea of what they need to learn.
“…building confidence and removing barriers to understanding”
Individual tuition is a very effective way to identify and remedy problem areas, thereby building confidence and removing barriers to learning. Many see tuition primarily as a means to prepare for examinations. It can certainly make a substantial difference to the grades obtained but it can also provide much more confidence. I keep a continuous interaction with the student during the whole lesson through questioning and different activities in order to keep the student engaged whilst I can check if learning is taking place.
“…far greater benefit and satisfaction from their school lessons”
The increased confidence and motivation which usually result from effective, ongoing tuition allows students to gain far greater benefit and satisfaction from their school lessons. I do evaluate the session in terms of what the student has mastered and what needs further work. Moreover, I set homework for my students so that they consolidate the acquisition of new concepts and skills.This is probably why most of my students choose to continue their tuition with me throughout a substantial fraction of their education.
