I have been a tutor for 8 years (6 years full-time). In my career I have taught a range of students, covering different abilities and needs, including explicit Special Educational Needs. I have worked for 6 years in a specialist interim school for students not in mainstream education.
I have achieved academic excellence for myself and hope to help others achieve their best too. My personal academic track record is: First Class Undergraduate Degree. 4 A*s at A level and 11 A*s at GCSE.
As a native Russian speaker I offer lessons to anyone who would like to learn the language, regardless of their level.
From my time tutoring I have identified two primary obstacles to pupils fulfilling their potential. A lack of confidence and teaching not tailored to the preferred learning style of the pupil. These two obstacles are best overcome if tackled simultaneously. By identifying my pupil`s learning style and strengths I hope to demonstrate to my pupils their unique potential and capitalise on it. On numerous occasions my tutees have actually exceeded their initial expectations of their progress.
My most successful strategy with pupils has been to maintain a shifting focus and lesson structure depending on what conclusions I draw from regular assessment of my pupil. As an aspiring artist I value creativity and implement it in my teaching - I am always trying out new methods if current ones are not bringing the best possible results.
