I love learning! In my 1-1 work with students as an Academic Coach and Tutor, I encourage them to be curious and ask questions to build on what they already know, to gain a depth of understanding.
I want my students to benefit from the joy of grappling with a complex idea and then grasping it.
My name is Clare and I am offering tutoring services for a variety of age groups. I also help with personal statements.
I have a tailored approach to each student’s needs, weaknesses, and strengths and work towards targets and achievable goals. I like to pre-plan all lessons with self-learning material, taught material, questions, exam-style questions, and application of knowledge questions. I also like to set additional (optional) tasks which can be done after tutoring sessions to secure knowledge. If students wish to receive any additional support outside of the tutoring session.
I have over 20 years of experience in tutoring, training, and teaching.
During this time, I have seen students grow both academically and personally.
My students have made excellent progress and received their target grades or better, and thoroughly enjoyed our tutorials together.
My approach to teaching could best be described as principled eclecticism. I strive to explain difficult things in a simple way. There is no holy grail of teaching: it is an art that is never completely mastered.
A student or learner- centered approach to teaching. Students drive the instruction, ask the questions, potentially create the models and methods of instructions, etc. They will actively engage in the learning atmosphere, they will drive the discussions, and they will ask and answer their questions.
