What You Can Achieve Through Personal Tuition
My goal in working with a student is to create a ‘virtuous learning circle’ – to develop the student’s ability to learn. I see this as a threefold process.
Firstly, I identify any weaknesses or gaps in my student’s knowledge. We work together to remedy these, and thereby, to improve your confidence and understanding at the most basic level. The result of this is that you gain more from your time spent in class and from your private study.
Secondly, we focus on learning strategies. Practicing and mastering certain key skills makes it possible to become a much more effective learner. This improves your potential to learn. Regularly my students report that they are learning better across the whole curriculum.
Thirdly, my goal is to ensure that the student gains a thorough understanding of the subject we are studying together. Real learning comes not from memorisation but from being able to apply general principles to many different cases. Ultimately, this means practicing and mastering the kind of problem solving exemplified in past papers.
