Tom

Tom

Oxford
German, Latin, History, Law
Masters: Bachelor of Civil Law; Distinction (2015)
approach in languages would be an emphasis on a solid understanding of the grammar rather than the trotting out of set phrases, but this obviously depends on the tutee's level, and just how far they want to go in the language. For history I would probably emphasise understanding the mechanics of an argument. However, once again, this all depends on the tutee, and I will do my best to adapt my teaching to their learning...

John

Oxford
PGCE: Classics IPGCE (2013)
tutoring in Classics: in Greek and Latin language work, I place more emphasis than many on composition into the language as a means of strengthening knowledge and understanding; in Classical Civilisation, Ancient History and the literary elements of Latin and Greek, I strive always to provoke a tutee to question accepted orthodoxies and to reach their own evidence-based and clearly expressed conclusions rather than teaching 'right answers' parrot-fashion. My experience is that this produces enjoyment...

Oxford
Italian, Latin
Masters: MA Literature and Philosophy (2006)
and from the first day of lessons and at each ability level I only speak Italian. I put particular emphasis on spoken language and on communication, but also deal with the 4 base abilities (reading, writing, oral comprehension and speaking). I design my lessons to always be interesting, interactive and fun, and I create a relaxed atmosphere in which learning is done naturally :) I use text books and other authentic material, like newspapers, magazines...

Oxford
Masters: MSc Child Development and Education (2017)
feel let down or left behind by the education system, and this is a problem I aim to tackle with my approach to tutoring. As a tutor I would therefore create an individual study programme for every student, and use different kinds of learning methods in order to help students work out what is best for them. I feel that my interest in educational psychology helps me with this, as it gives me an understanding...
Ruth

Ruth

Oxford
School: GCSEs (2013)
have also tutored a number of students individually in languages and music. My approach to tutoring is to start with a session where targets for the student are set so that they get what they want out of the sessions. I then think that using the sessions to go through material in an active way are useful, followed by homework (that I will mark and give feedback on) to consolidate what was learned in class....
Curtis

Curtis

Oxford
College: A level Chemistry (2015)
a classroom teacher, and then expecting it all to somehow sink in, my tutorials will be much more interactive and constructive. They will proceed by me asking you questions to get you thinking and working things out for yourself, and asking more questions based on your responses, until I am satisfied that you have demonstrated to me the understanding I'm looking for. This proven method is much more rewarding, as it really develops your understanding...
