I believe that the most important virtue in a tutor is the ability to empathise with a student's cognitive position. When teaching I aim to guide a student through the mental steps needed to accomplish the goal of the lesson.
I typically spend much of a lesson in dialogue with the student. I break this up with exercises to embed and reinforce key points, but I always end the lesson with a call to reflection on what the student has learned. I emphasise that knowledge is open-ended and interconnected.
Taught a range of subjects at all ages: English, History, Economics, Politics, Religious Studies, and Philosophy
Helped students prepare for 11+ and other exams for a range of top UK and London schools (such as Winchester, Westminster, Rugby, Charterhouse and Dulwich, Tonbridge, Emanuel, Whitgift).
Approximately 70 students. Students achieved excellent results; for example, I recently helped an A-level Politics student go from a D to an A in essays. Another gained 92/100 in his exam after severely disrupted school teaching.
