My degree and employment has helped to develop in depth research and analytical skills. A calm, measured and competent approach to tuition will always aim to give the tutee the best service possible. Going the extra mile to ensure complete customer satisfaction is something I fully endorse and apply to my approach with tutoring.
Teaching experience includes informal teaching and tutoring, helping friends with their studies and providing basic guidance on subject matter. Coaching and developing skills in badminton at Invergordon Academy as an informal coach at the school's after school badminton club which runs in conjunction with their PE department.
Undergoing private tuition within my own education means I have a good working knowledge around good practice, techniques involved and the environment needed to develop the skills necessary to acheive the best results and realise the potential a tutee has.
A measured and reasoned approach, taking into consideration the course material that the tutee covers in his/her studies, as well as their temperment and attitude to the course is needed to provide the best service and attain the best results. I would ensure that the tutoring offered was as done so in as calm and relaxed an atmosphere as possible, without compromising the learning capacity. Putting tutees and clients at ease, giving them control and allowing flexability is something I regard as being very important.
I'm passionate about the subjects I offer tuition in and have done a lot of major, in depth analytical work on a broad range of topics relating to the subjects I offer tuition in. My previous experience and work around those subjects allows me special insight into the subject areas I offer.
I have extensive experience in writing critical and analytical essays, literature reviews and bibliographies on a number of different case studies and topics. My goal with regard to tutoring is to deliver my best possible service to tutees, ensuring that they achieve the best results possible for their academic progression.
