Information About Kit - Edinburgh tutor - (6 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Kit:
My name is Kit and I just got back to Scotland after spending two years in New Zealand. I have plenty of tutoring experience and have many good references from my tutees and their mums back in NZ.
During my time in New Zealand I tutored many students, both short and long term, as well as working part time at a primary school. I taught a wide range of ages and levels, anywhere from Year 7 up to first year of university. For 21 months of my time there, I also taught maths to a home-schooled child. When I started teaching him he had been struggling to keep up, but he is now a year ahead of the normal school syllabus for children his age.
Now that I'm back in the UK my intention is to continue the same line of work I had been doing in NZ. I really enjoy and excel at working with and teaching kids of all ages, and will continue to do it as long as I can. My patient, approachable attitude and my aptitude for breaking down complex topics into understandable chunks would make me a great choice to teach you or your kid.
- 2 years of self-employed tutoring experience (2015-2017)
- Worked as a tutor at University of Glasgow Mathematics Summer School (2015)
- Volunteered at Teen VGN Summer Camp (2015 & 2016)
- Other experience working with kids includes working at and running after school care programmes in several primary schools around Wellington, New Zealand (2015-2017)
I find that the best approach to tutoring to be as open and flexible as possible, as every student has different issues and difficulties and you need to be able to vary your approach and teaching style to match the student's needs. For example, with some students I have prepared lessons on specific topics beforehand, with some I have gone through their school work and homework with them each week, and with others I have allowed them to decide what they think they need to work on and answered any questions they had on these topics. I believe this variability is essential to being a good tutor.

He says that Kit is really good at explaining the maths and has really helped him understand what they have been learning during the sessions and he has been able to apply this better at school. It’s what we hoped for with the sessions for our son so we are very happy. My son looks forward to the weekly sessions to which is great Kit is really making my son enjoy Maths more.
Very good prices too, and I would suggest that Kit is worth far more than the rates he charges.
Best of luck for the future Kit.
