My approach to tutoring is simple, make it fun, resourceful & practical. My structure involves: 1. Get to know the student first. 2. Identifying their likes and challenges. 3. Highlight one challenge, exploring the challenge & find a fun solution. 4. Debrief what we have explored. 5. If need be, set light homework for minor revision for the next lesson. If we remember what we explored in the previous lesson, we've made good progress. All worksheets should be tailor made or specific towards the needs of the student, because every student usually has a specific way of learning. My levels of tutoring are very versatile, including Primary, Lower or Middle High School, Senior High School, Entrance Exams & University level. Anything is possible when we have a desire to learn, from ourselves and each other and above all, learning should be fun and resourceful.
TESTIMONIALS: Another happy customer! Thank you Jennifer. We were really impressed with how the session went and the way the boys responded. I think as much as maths and science help is needed, a solid foundation is absolutely a key and I could see growth occurring even in that short time.
Hiya Mark, I am looking forward to the next eight weeks smashing through these assessments. Also, I got a distinction for the last assessment that we worked on. See you on Wednesday Emma
