About my sessions

My tutoring style tends to focus on helping the student to reach the answer themselves, as I have found that when the student makes the connection to the right answer themselves it is easier for them to remember the answer. I also believe this is important to provide a strong base for further study.

My tutoring style tends to focus on helping the student to reach the answer themselves, as I have found that when the student makes the connection to the right answer themselves it is easier for them to remember the answer. I also believe this is important to provide a strong base for further study.


My lessons tend to be structured off each other, in the sense that during the lesson I will make note of aspects that the student struggles with that I will incorporate into the next lesson. In this way, each lesson if very much tailored to the needs of an individual student. I also try to structure my lessons in an almost cyclical way in that a topic/grammatical point from a couple of lessons before may come back at a later date to consolidate and reinforce the student's understanding. In my personal experience, this consolidation has been vital to my revision and learning process as it ensures that the knowledge is present in my long-term memory.


One of the other key aspects to my lessons is ensuring that by the end the student has an understanding of what the aim of the lesson was. Whether or not they have fully grasped the subject matter, it is important that they know what the purpose was as this way they remain engaged and do not consider the lessons 'pointless'.
