I like to individualise my sessions based on the student and their own learning needs. I have the ability to adapt my teaching method based on the student's learning style (ie. visual, audio, "learn one, do one, teach one" method, etc). I know that some people take longer for certain concepts or themes to click and understand that there is more than one way of teaching a specific topic.
I assist students that are struggling with specific aspects or tasks (presentation, speech, essay). The students bring their problem to the table, and we work together to solve the issue. Lessons are usually an hour long, and we use Skype, and email to exchange documents and send annotated copies of work.
I approach each topic by first gathering an understanding of my students' knowledge on the task required, and tailoring the learning process in a way that is engaging for that particular student.
My teaching method is based around highlighting areas for improvement and implementing strategies to work on these.
I am a kind and compassionate person, who enjoys helping others in their learning and understanding of a subject. I have no set lesson plan, as I would prefer to design one based on a students abilities and current circumstances.
As a tutor, the key is to listen carefully to the students’ individual needs, personality and learning style, in order to identify and bring clarity to the areas requiring support. It is essential to build rapport, to encourage and motivate, to develop a safe and supportive space. The key to learning is feeling relaxed, heard and valued.
I work on an individual student lead approach. Firstly assessing knowledge and skills and then developing from a ground up approach. I feel it is important to help my students discover their own weaknesses and then give them the tools to build towards success.
My teaching methodology will be tailored to the needs of each student, but generally aims to teach students the skills required to interpret texts with depth and clarity, and to advance their writing skills, so that their work is very much their own.
I structure my tutoring lessons on the importance of student understanding and learning. By this, I mean not simply telling students the answer, or changing a student’s draft for them. My methodolgy is to positively encourage students to explore their own ideas, and challenge their thinking.
