What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
I enjoy sharing my love and enthusiasm for the subject and hope to pass on that passion to the students. I believe I would get a lot out of seeing the student's development and knowing I had a part to play in it. With tutoring my sister and friends (and my work at SciWorld), I tailer my explanation for the audience and try different techniques until they understand, and it excites me just as much as it does the student when I see that glint of understanding in their eye.
My Strengths as Tutor
Through my work as a science communicator, I have the ability to alter and tailor my explanations to different age groups and skill levels. Explaining the concept of gravity to a 5 year old is very different to a 15 year old and I have experience working with both age groups in helping them understand scientific concepts.
Having completed my year 12 in 2015, I have a high level of understanding of the current curriculum (in maths, chemistry and physics) and can therefore empathise and recognise issues the students may have.
Most important things I can do for a student
I believe one of the most important things a tutor can do is to help the student find confidence that they can achieve, whilst keeping their passion alive for the subject. A tutor is there to help students find the answers so they can realise their full potential.
