I quickly develop positive relationships with my students. This allows me to tailor my approach to the specific needs of the individual. Every student is different, so every approach needs to be different.
I build confidence within in my students and ensure they feel comfortable to ask questions in order to ensure their success.
Working for the exam board means I also coach my students in examination technique and in how to gain marks in examinations (a key component in exam success!) as well as clearly explaining the subject content.
