What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I enjoy helping students gain confidence in their own abilities, encouraging them to strive for excellence and seeing them reach goals they previous thought were unattainable.
My Strengths as Tutor
Friends and colleagues have often commented on my ability to describe sometimes complex concepts in a simple, straightforward manner which anyone could easily understand. I am extremely patient and like to focus more on gaining a full understanding of a topic, rather than memorizing. I have spent lots of time working with younger children which has given me the skills to command focus and respect, while still maintaining a good relationship and keeping the child engaged in the task at hand.
Most important things I can do for a student
A tutor needs to be able to inspire a student to strive and succeed in their chosen field, while still maintaining a personal, friendly relationship with them. A tutor must help the student to understand the coursework, but more than that must teach the student how to think (not just what to think) and how to apply that knowledge in many situations. Ideally a student should enjoy the work they are doing, and a tutor plays a large role in ensuring that learning is seen a joy and a privilege, not a burden.
