Tutoring Approach

Context and topiciality are crucial to securing high marks in the reformed A levels and are key to my approach in supporting students one to one. After all they are subjects that we live! Tutoring has convinced me that a patient but persistent manner can yield high level outcomes. I also know well the areas of the material that students struggle with most (exchange rates is usually one!). I also enjoy essay planning with students - starting from scratch and building structures to responses and pupils have appreciated and enjoyed this guided approach.
