My Experience

I have extensive experience as a tutor through my work with sixth-form students at Westminster Kingsway College (WKC). I worked as a mentor to a group of 7 aspiring university pupils, and helped them with their academic work and university applications. I often read over their homework and explained challenging concepts that they were struggling with. Throughout my time at WKC, I was proud to help all 7 students gain entry into their top choice universities or apprenticeships.

My Approach To Private Tuition

When first meeting a student, I like to make clear and realistic goals that are time bound so there can be assessment of progress against what the student and I have set out. I will get to know the students preferred learning method and what they are looking for from their tutor.

At the start of each session, I set out clear learning objectives to help guide the session. I like to get an understanding of what the student already knows about the topic, and build on that knowledge; trying my best to make new concepts interesting and interactive for my students. I may use diagrams to explain concepts, or use real life examples to illustrate how these concepts may be applied. I find that this helps students remember the information better.

At the end of each session, I re-review the main objectives to make sure they have been met. I may set homework to help the student consolidate this new knowledge. If the student has any questions about the previous weeks work, this can be discussed at the beginning of the next session.
