Approach to Grinds:
I hate the word Grinds with its suggestion of mindless, repetitive toil. Throughout my teaching career I have tried to combine enjoyment with intellectual rigour whether in the class situation or one-to-one. I like to assess the student's present position, set realistic goals and try to achieve them by a varied, energetic approach focussed on the goal but without excessive seriousness.
