Information about Cameron - Saint Lucia tutor
I am a 29 year old, male, mature-age student studying Ecology and Conservation Biology . I am almost 18 months into my degree and am loving it. My GPA is 6.5 (A-grade student) and I have recently been invited into the Griffith Honours College for high achievement.
I have 12 years experience as a draftsman, drawing hydraulic, electrical and mechanical systems for the construction industry. Rather than continuing work in this field I prefer to teach others the subjects that I am passionate about; biology and chemistry.
In my spare time I enjoy mountain biking, rockclimbing, hiking and kung-fu. I have been learning jazz guitar since the mid-nineties and have been learning kung fu since 2004.
As I mentioned previously, I have had years of experience as a draftsman. During this time I have taught numerous junior employees how to use CAD drafting software and produce drawings to a high standard. I found that teaching people is very satisfying. As a senior student of wing chun kung fu I have often been called upon to teach junior students under my instructors supervision.
My approach is to convey genuine enthusiasm for the subject while fostering an intuition in the student, enabling them to solve problems for themselves. If a student is able to explain a concept, this demonstrates that they understand the concept. For this reason I feel it is important to prompt students to discuss their ideas. This two way communication is the beauty of 1 on 1 tuition.
Patience is the key for both student and tutor.
