What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
The thing I enjoy most about tutoring is making a connection with the student and watching as they progress from someone who lacks confidence and/or skill in the subject to someone who can confidently handle difficult problems with ease. As an outgoing, people orientated person working this closely with a student is a very rewarding experience. I am very passionate about maths so not only does tutoring allow me to make a difference to a student it allows me to share one of my passions. I am highly committed to my students and their success so watching them excel always makes my day.

Most important things I can do for a student
The most important thing a tutor can do for a student is develop problem solving skills and to help them to make connections in their own mind, leading to greater retention in the long term. A tutorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s end goal shouldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be to teach a student how to work out a specific problem, it should be to get the student to a point where they can tackle difficult or unfamiliar problems confidently using problem solving strategies. A big part of this is encouraging the student and building up confidence in their abilities. It is also very important to get the student engaging with the subject.
