I am 37 years old and was born in Canada but have lived here since I was young and have been through the school system in Scotland. Importantly I am a good listener and have found this to be one of my greatest attributes when teaching. I have a very outgoing personality and relate well to all ages.
I have been tutoring for the past seven years and am also a qualified Teacher of English. I have current National 5 and Higher classes and am therefore familiar with all aspects of the curriculum.
I have so far found great success with my tutees but this can in no way be guaranteed. You can only get as much out of a tutoring relationship as you put in but my pupils so far have said they find it easier to put in the effort as they see how committed I am to helping them learn. I generally prefer a higher tech method; utilising powerpoint presentations and various other media forms. I also set the dreaded (and much needed) homework so all new pupils would have to prepared to complete this.
