Tutoring Approach

METHODOLOGY and APPROACH

I concentrate on laying a firm foundation of the subject matter and build confidence to apply the principles successfully. I revise work which the tutees find difficult and the work that they might not have been taught properly in the school. I regularly revise questions from past question papers with the tutees. I give tutees homework, mark it and discuss it with them.
I give the parents / guardians access to download my notes, past question papers and mark schemes.

ONLINE TUTORING

I tutored students in the past and present online in the UK, Germany, Portugal, Taiwan, Singapore, South Africa and Zimbabwe via SKYPE and ZOOM.
