As a learning and development professional with fifteen years experience in the education sector, I can offer both a wide range of teaching skills and techniques and an in-depth understanding of individual learning styles. Everyone has a mix of learning styles, with some being more predominant than others—identifying this mix and working with it is the key to unlocking and nurturing talent.
I have found that tutoring, either on a group or one-to-one basis, is an ideal platform for encouraging genuine interest in particular subject areas. It takes a combination of patience and persistence to gain trust, respect and that all important commitment to expanding horizons. While timetables and individual lessons plans are essential for helping students achieve their goals, vital components in that process are the desire to learn and the commitment to succeed.
Learning involves both passion and discipline. Over the years I have found this to be true, whether working with individuals or groups. There is no substitute for experience when it comes to finding the right balance between a structured approach to learning and the freedom to explore true creativity. Helping individuals to reach their full potential is a reward in its own right. Making a difference—that’s what counts.
