Experience: My Take on Education...
========================

I love expressing creativity through learning and understanding new things, and strive to excel in sharing insight and in helping others to succeed in all their educational goals.

Education is a great gift and can be a wonderful experience under the right cond,itions for teacher and learner. I have received training in teaching and learning which, together with my extensive experience informs the ways I work with students / tutees / learners.

My approach is to work alongside learners with the aim of facilitating them to discover and develop their own most suitable strategies and techniques for achieving their goals. These goals can be very diverse: to feel more confident, to boost grades, to improve general skills, to pass specific exams, to gain entry to Universities, to write better reports, or to master specific subjects or areas.

For me, “good learning” is not just about “passing the exam” but also about developing skills which are genuinely enriching to the individual, and useful throughout life. And, “good learning” does not have to be a “hard slog”– it can be “fun” whilst also achieving serious and lasting results.

My main drive is a huge personal curiosity and a desire to explore, develop, and express creativity to expand my understanding and insight and to help others to do the same and become fully-rounded individuals who contribute and enrich the lives of others and society in general.

I am very down-to-earth, friendly, open, and approachable. I always take into account the learner`s age, experience, starting-level and needs, and am very hard-working and adaptable in finding new and appropriate ways to get the required results for each individual.

I regularly ask for detailed feedback on my own performance as an educator, and on the students` experience as learners in order to fine-tune my activities to optimise outcomes. I “do my homework” each week, too! I am also happy to be available (as appropriate) for telephone, e-mail, or e-conferencing consultations between face-to-face sessions to facilitate the learning experience.

Patrick has been an excellent tutor for my son the last few months. The lessons are planned prior to the session and work is also provided. There has been areas in Physics that my son has struggled with when taught in school but once shown by Patrick in an online session, completely understood! I would hugely recommend Patrick as a tutor, my son really does find him brilliant and does not only thoroughly enjoy the sessions, but is now enjoying Physics as a lesson too.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to leave feedback. I always strive hard to help the students I work with in the way that fits their needs best, and it is so rewarding to make a real difference. I look forward to carrying on with the journey until A-Levels are over. If there is anything I can do in future, please don`t hesitate to get in touch. All the very best, CHEERS! Patrick.

My daughter is finding the A level Biology tutoring really helpful and says that Patrick explains things well. She particularly finds going over past papers very useful. He has also sent her lots of good resources for helping her revise topics.

I would 100% recommend Patrick, i have seen him almost every week since September and have gained so much confidence in my knowledge and ability to apply it. He is always positive and encouraging no matter the depth of your understanding on a topic. He provides clear and concise notes for each topic you ask about and the questions are relevant to the topic and the exam board you`re attached to.

Tutors Response :

First of all: Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to leave feedback! I always work hard alongside my clients to help them achieve their goals in whatever way is best for them. So, I do make sure I am prepared, and have plenty of material available to help out, whether notes, practice questions and answers, or past exam papers. It`s important to be flexible too, to be able to respond to changing needs from session to session. Every topic is different too, as is every learner, and I aim to be sensitive to everyone`s individual needs and responsive to their enquiries. It is a pleasure and a privilege helping others succeed, and I enjoy what I do immensely. And, whilst education and exams are a serious business, on top of this, I always seek to engage with the person as a person, and find some fun in learning. Thanks once again, and I look forward to carrying on with our "education journey" together!

Patrick is extremely knowledgeable, he has lots of resources, and is helping my son gain confidence in Physics topics. I would highly recommend him.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for taking the time and trouble to give me feedback on the A-Level Physics Tuition. It is a pleasure to help in this way, and I am more than happy to continue with the tuition over SKYPE, given the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. I have a full range of teaching materials - notes, exercises, exam questions, and so on, and can send these by e-mail and share things on the screen. Just let me know, and I will do everything I can to help. All the very best - stay safe! Patrick.

It is an absolute pleasure working with Guy on A-Level Biology. Every student is different, so it it is always a fascinating and stimulating process to work together to explore a particular subject and gain deeper insight. I look forward very much to carrying on with the journey. Thank you very much for taking the time and trouble to leave feedback. All the very best, Patrick.
