Tutoring Approach

Tutoring sessions are catered to the student's learning style and follow the syllabus. Each session will consist of going through subject content, focusing on areas the student is struggling on, and consolidating knowledge with questions. Closer to exam time the sessions will focus on exam technique and past paper questions to help the student excel.
