This is how 3 referees rated Dan:
My name is Dan and I am 34. I am a very laid back person with a passion of helping others succeed in their academic careers whether it be at school or at University level. I enjoy participating in sports such as badminton, hockey and cricket. I also enjoy foreign cuisine and going to the movies. My other hobbies include quizzes, playing chess and building computers.I am also open to online and home tuition as well as alternatives, but I feel that face to face contact is the best method of tutoring.
Started a PGCE at Swansea Metropolitan and completed my first placement at Llanishen High School in North Cardiff. I have taught a Yr 7 class on the topic of acids and alkalis. I taught a Yr 9 class on the topic of photosynthesis. Due to personal reasons I had to withdraw from the course. It remains to be seen whether I will go back to Secondary School education as I feel that my direction is towards Primary School education and I am currently saving to get a place on the course.
The first thing that I would do is assess the needs of the tutee and what areas need improvements. Then I would develop a schedule to cover every topic that needs extra work. This schedule can be flexible as the student can dictate their own pace. I adopt a very patient and adaptable approach as if a concept is difficult to explain then I would change the way I would describe it. I always think of strategies of remembering certain facts, which would help for examination practice. If an examination is imminent then I would gather as many past papers as possible and go through examination technique.

unfortunately, due to my son not wanting to have a 1:1 tutorial at home, we were not able to carry on the arrangement.
He was very helpful and her science improved a lot in these two weeks by him.
We will be in touch in few months time and we would like to have session with you again for next exam.
Thank you very much,Dan!
