My approach to teaching will be based on the experience I have gathered in the classroom. I will begin by assessing the child in the subject and then identifying gaps in the their knowledge. With this information I will then develop a plan for the individual child to help secure their knowledge of the subject. I will continue to assess the child throughout the tutoring to ensure that progress is being made in each session. The content of each session will be taken from the national curriculum.
