Harry is a friendly and enthusiastic tutor; his motto for teaching is that anyone can learn anything, you just have to find the right approach. In his experience, Harry has observed that every pupil learns differently although he is yet to find a student who hasn't enjoyed seeing science come to life through practicals and demonstrations. In his own words: “It is so important to adopt a style of teaching that is suited to the pupils’ needs, so that they can achieve the best results they are capable of.” Harry approaches his teaching with a great deal of enthusiasm and patience and has been able to turn the subjects his tutees were previously most worried about into their favourite lessons. "In my lessons I place a lot of emphasis on exam technique and terminology however include additional information for my students to be able to place what they have learnt in a wider context giving a more rounded education."
