This is how 2 referees rated Paul:
I am currently studying Graduate Entry Medicine at the University of Southampton, having completed my undergraduate degree in Physiology in June 2015. I continue to tutor during my students, having started whilst sitting my own GCSEs in 2008 and 2009. I have helped over 60 students to progress both academically and in confidence since I began tutoring. I previously also worked as a Dispensing Technician in a local community pharmacy.
My experience of tutoring over sixty students from ages 7 to 18, and adult education, has taught me the best ways to motivate and to connect with students; not only those who struggle to grasp topics and method, but also those who have lost confidence in themselves.
I began to tutor fellow students whilst sitting my own GCSEs and A levels for Maths and Statistics, and have since tutored at all levels from KS1 to A level. I've also worked with students with educational needs such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia, and I always encourage students to not use these issues as excuses, but as motivation to work harder!
I've helped to improve confidence in all of my students, and try instil the knowledge that any question can be approached and understood.
As a tutor with wide and varied experience, I know that it is important for students to feel comfortable and confident, and I always encourage my students to apply their own knowledge to questions before adding new information. My supportive style is focused on being calm, patient and methodical, and I encourage students to take care and thought over each question, but that they should know that wrong answers allow them to learn. I always ensure that not only does the student have core, and advanced knowledge, but that they have confidence in the fact that anything can be achieved! I believe that learning on a one-to-one basis is fundamentally based on time and practice, and with the right approach and focus, any student can reach their goals.
