Cambridge Graduate Looking for Tutees

Personal Description:
I have recently graduated from Cambridge University with an MSci and BA in Natural Sciences. I am about to embark on the next stage of my career but whilst I am looking around for jobs I would love to do some tutoring. I have found tutoring very satisfying in the past, especially when I see my pupils understanding something clearly for the first time.
Tutoring Experience:
I have tutored a small handful of pupils over the past five years but this has only ever been intermittently because of moving in between university and home. I have had two music pupils, teaching the violin for one year in 2012, and have tutored a group of students for their GCSE maths in 2011. However, now I am settled in Cambridge I am looking to take on more pupils and systematise my teaching more.
Tutoring Approach:
I try to listen to my pupils as much as possible to begin with so I can gage what they enjoy and what they are struggling with the most. I then try to balance these things so that no one gets frustrated and there is always an element of satisfaction in a lesson. I think it is important to be working on the edge of each pupil's comfort zone so that they progress, but never feel overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. This helps gradual learning and progression. I treat each pupil as my equal, to give a sense that we are team getting through their work together. However, each person is different, and if I sense that a pupil needs to have a more separate teacher-student relationship I can accommodate for this too - I just prefer the more friendly approach.
