I first became interested in tutoring when looking for a part time job whilst at university. Having been tutored myself, I find the achievement felt by the child is something so special, I want to be able to give that to them by passing on my knowledge.
Having had the privilege to attend a top grammar school, I’ve been taught in structured and exciting ways, which I feel has provided the basis to my teaching techniques. Making lessons individualised to each student’s needs, working towards targets set between myself, the parent and the child, I plan my lessons in such a way that will keep the child engaged with fun learning techniques.
Whilst working as a tutor at Explore Learning, I saw a number of children through 11 plus exams, and it was a joy to hear when they had passed and gained a place in the school of their choice, particularly those who’s confidence was fairly low. Having been in their position, I was able to relate to what they were going through, which gave them the confidence to believe in themselves and achieve what they thought they couldn’t.
I believe tutoring is an effective way to build upon skills and confidence in subjects in a more comfortable environment, giving an insight and understanding around the subject which may not be covered under the national curriculum. Being able to relate to the student and form a bond with them, which you would not normally able to do at school, puts a child at ease and is part of the success of development through tutoring and enjoyment in subjects they may have originally disliked.
Having recently finished higher education, I am able to relate to the stresses and emotions through the exam period, and through these I can help a student to understand and find the best ways for them to make that period as smooth as possible.
