Information About Adam - Colchester tutor
This is how a referee rated Adam:
PE / Sport Science
I am an experienced and qualified teacher of Maths, Physical Education and Biology. I am passionate about helping students to achieve their goals, in a way that they find enjoyable.
I qualified as a PE Teacher in 2011, and taught at Manningtree High School for 4 years. I then gained experience of teaching a variety of subjects in Australia for a year before returning to the UK. I now work as a PE and Maths Teacher at Colchester High School, an independent school in the heart of Colchester. I have experience of teaching GCSE and A level PE, Primary/Secondary/GCSE Maths, as well as Biology. In my current role, I also tutor Year 11 students on a 1 to 1 basis in preparation for their GCSE Maths exams.
Students learn best when they take ownership of their own learning. I encourage students to want to learn for themselves, rather than just during a tutoring session or lesson. I do this by making learning enjoyable,and ensuring students achieve success regardless of their ability or level. This makes the student work hard independently to achieve more success.
I think it is important to teach students ‘why’ answers are what they are, rather than simply teaching them ‘what’ an answer is. This way students can fully understand topics at a deeper level.
10% of what they read
20% of what they hear
30% of what they see
50% of what they hear and see
70% of what they say and write
90% of what they do… Therefore, I use techniques that involve students ‘doing’ activities, rather than listening, watching or reading instructions. I spend time ensuring students fully understand a topic before giving them practise and exam questions, and encourage students to mark exam questions themselves to ensure they learn fully from their mistakes.
