I have mentored and coached professional staff in the workplace and able to help professionals with work assignments.
I spend time discussing with a prospective student and parents,if appropriate ,what his or her needs are and discuss expectations of tutoring to ensure a good match. I work from those needs with individual sessions using a variety of techniques to suit the individual and providing homework and preparation
for sessions to ensure maximum benefit. Moving from supported learning to responsible self directed learning is important as the student advances.I like a relaxed style and atmosphere .I am working only from my own home and students travel to me.I work on two evenings per week and a Saturday morning.
I work with students on improving motivation and confidence.
Feedback to individuals and where appropriate to parents is crucial throughout the tutoring period.
If you or I have to cancel a session ,due to illness for example,I will reschedule the missed session as soon as possible thereafter.
