I think it is critical to develop a good relationship with the tutee. I try to make sure to put the tutee at ease so that their mind is focused on the topic. I am honest, punctual, and very thorough to ensure that the tutee understands everything before moving on. I like to set tasks from simple exercises of `true or false` to extended pieces of writing. I think it is vital to instil in the tutee the value of education and perseverance for the long term this was certainly my attitude when I was at school and university.

Experience: I worked as a teaching assistant for 9 months at a number of schools whilst studying for my final year of university. This involved helping a range of students of all ages. Also on completion of my degree, I spent my summer working with children on a summer camp in the USA. Spending my summer in the United States was one of my most fulfilling summers to date, this along with my teaching placement, made me realise that I have a passion for teaching and work with children.

I worked as a tutor in Perth, Western Australia to help supplement my travels round Australia. I found it a very rewarding and helped me learn to deal with individual concerns and different ways of teaching and learning. Adjusting my teaching styles and methods to a different culture has helped me gain some perspective on how to be most effective in my work.
In England I have been tutoring 5 different people since I got back in GCSE English and Maths, A level business studies and also P.E. teaching course at degree level
