Personal Statement

In many circumstances, education is solely based on learning to pass examinations. Whilst this is definitely necessary, I believe that the student should also be able to gain in-depth knowledge of the subject that will stick with them and motivate them to develop a core understanding of the subject. One of the key components in the process of learning is having an enthusiastic teacher who not only encourages students to learn in a fun and stimulating manner, but also inspires the student with their passion for their subject. As oppose to learning in a huge class of 30 pupils at school, tuition provides a safe, nourishing environment where the focal point is the student; thus, the student develops confidence and a deeper understanding of the subject being taught. Additionally, it is important to form a secure tutor-tutee relationship, whereby the tutee is able to trust the teacher and feel comfortable. As a tutor, I want to provide students with exam techniques and revision skills. Equally, I aim to fire up students’ imagination and help them think innovatively and identify their optimum learning technique. With this, I hope to help students relate topics to the real world and carry out extra research or reading. I currently specialise in the sciences. However, I am also able to teach other subjects and skills such as entrance examinations.
