What do I enjoy most about tutoring?
The main thing I've always enjoyed about tutoring is seeing the student's passion for the subject grow as they start to become more and more confident with the subject matter. When you look back at how far a student has come, and realise that you had a hand in that progression, it's incredibly gratifying. If I can teach my students to find as much satisfaction from learning maths as I had when I was still in education, I feel like my tuition was successful.
My Strengths as Tutor
My strengths as a tutor include:
- Engaging the student. Having worked in several people-oriented job roles, I know that having a relationship of mutual respect and understanding between student and teacher helps the process run much more smoothly!
- Subject knowledge. Having gained the highest BSc Maths mark at Durham University, I know my subject inside out, and can confidently answer any questions the student may have.
- Interest. Through personal experience, I realise how important it is to show the student the interesting side of maths; this is what can really inspire them to pursue the subject with fervour.
Most important things I can do for a student
In my opinion, the key thing to teach a student is independence. The more I can help a student become independent in their study, the better stead they'll be in for exams, revision and further education, as a passion for learning the material by your own merit is the key for future success. If I can pass on the passion I have for maths, teach my students to find a love for the subject and also teach them to have a willingness to strive to reach the best of their abilities, then I can't ask for more than that!
