Assessing different learning styles and individual levels of motivation allows me to structure my approach. Each tutoring assignment is tailored to the individual with emphasis on knowledge, writing skills, essay structure, employing scaffolding templates to improve focus, skills and outcome. All tuition is framed for the individual with emphasis on knowledge, writing structures with scaffolding templates, current debates and arguments. I am able to provide most of the resources but like to include key texts etc. that the student has available.
Engaging a tutor is often a difficult decision and many students find it difficult to make an ongoing commitment to a regular schedule. Flexibility can be discussed, subject to capacity limitation and, generally, notice by email, 24 hours in advance has proven successful. Payment is best made in advance, covering a minimum of 4 sessions over a four weekly period, thus ensuring continuity and preferential availability. .
