Do you have a personal message for students?
We all learn differently. I believe that the importance of a tutor is to facilitate personal education in a logical and consistent manner. As a tutor, I aim to motivate students to excel in whatever capacity I am working with them. I am passionate about learning and I try to instil a similar view towards learning from my students, which often motivates them to work harder for the correct reasons; in effect for their own success. I consider daily discipline to be essential, but to approach studying in an energetic and youthful manner is also a valuable way for students to connect to their work.
