Personal Description:

Hello! I am an experienced tutor (100+ hours) currently earning my MA (Hons) in Economics at the University of Edinburgh . I am particularly adept at mathematics, english, economics, essay writing and marking essays.

I have won several essay writing competitions over the years and am interested in a variety of subjects. Empathy and understanding are at the core of my tutoring style and I am conscious of the different ways that students learn.

Tutoring Experience:

I have attended several teaching seminars and I spent 4 years during school teaching and tutoring peers and younger years in maths, english and study/writing skills. I am familiar with a number of different methods of teaching and have worked with students with a number of different learning styles and abilities.

Tutoring Approach:

I subscribe to the teaching method of Implant, Reinforce and Maintain (IRM) taught to many teachers today.

Implant - My experience has taught me that guiding students to answers through careful questioning and assessment of current knowledge is the best way to initially implant knowledge.

Reinforce - From there I will reinforce the knowledge with further questioning, challenges and work.

Maintain - I will then work with the student to maintain the information through long-term revisitation and utilization of concepts.

I take a slightly different approach to each For more information about teaching approaches to specific subjects, do not hesitate to contact me.
