About me

In my A-levels, I was studying four subjects while training for a triathlon, practicing the piano for two hours a day and volunteering as a tutor twice a week. This meant I didn’t have much time to study. Thus, I had to work efficiently, making the most of every available minute. It worked: I got 4 A*s, dropping only a handful of marks across all my exams. This experience taught me that the primary factor determining exam success isn’t how many hours you put in, or even how focused you are wh...

In my A-levels, I was studying four subjects while training for a triathlon, practicing the piano for two hours a day and volunteering as a tutor twice a week. This meant I didn’t have much time to study. Thus, I had to work efficiently, making the most of every available minute. It worked: I got 4 A*s, dropping only a handful of marks across all my exams. This experience taught me that the primary factor determining exam success isn’t how many hours you put in, or even how focused you are when you work, but rather how intelligently you structure and plan your study. This key principle, studying efficiently, guides my tutoring: I intend to improve my pupils’ performance not by motivating them to study longer or harder, but rather by addressing their weaknesses using a systematic, long-term approach, while teaching them how to play to their strengths in exams.

About my sessions

In my experience, exam success comes about from two key factors: understanding and ability to answer questions. Thus, each lesson will be broadly split into two halves, the first developing the pupil's understanding, and the second refining their question-answering technique.

The Understanding Section

This will begin with an informal verbal assessment of what the pupil understands about the topic. Honesty is key here, as this will inform the subsequent section...

In my experience, exam success comes about from two key factors: understanding and ability to answer questions. Thus, each lesson will be broadly split into two halves, the first developing the pupil's understanding, and the second refining their question-answering technique.

The Understanding Section

This will begin with an informal verbal assessment of what the pupil understands about the topic. Honesty is key here, as this will inform the subsequent section, a 5-15 minute period in which I explain the concepts the pupil is struggling with, approaching them from different perspectives to build their intuition. Then, I will invite them to discuss the topic, and ask any questions that my explanation may have raised.

The Questions Section 

This will be split into 3 categories: knowledge-based questions, conceptual questions and exam-style questions. The knowledge-based questions are designed to allow the pupil to apply the equations or ideas they have learned to simple problems, to get a "feel" for how they work. Gradually, we will progress to the more demanding conceptual questions, which will challenge and deepen their understanding. Finally, we will tackle some exam-style questions to show them what to expect when they come to sit their tests.
