Tutoring Approach

The joy of one-to-one tutoring is the fact that it can be tailored directly to the needs of one individual. I have worked with a huge variety of individual tutees from students cramming last-minute for an important examination to very mature adults learning purely for pleasure. This variety is one of the things that I enjoy most about tutoring.
