Tell me about some of your current students.
I have received special training in teaching and learning, in communication skills, and in aspects of psychology, all of which inform the ways I work with students / tutees / learners.
My approach is to work alongside learners with the aim of facilitating them to discover and develop their own most suitable strategies and techniques for achieving their goals.
These goals can be very diverse: to feel more confident, to boost grades, to improve general skills, to pass specific exams, to gain entry to Universities, to write better reports, or to master specific subjects or areas.
For me, “good learning” is not just about "passing the exam" but also about developing skills which are genuinely enriching to the individual, and useful throughout life. And, “good learning” does not have to be a “hard slog” – it can be “fun” whilst also achieving serious and lasting results.
My main drive is a huge personal curiosity and a desire to explore, develop, and express creativity; to expand my understanding and insight; and to help others to do the same and become full-rounded individuals who contribute to and enrich the lives of others and society in general.
I am very down-to-earth, friendly, open, and approachable. I always take into account the learner's age, experience, starting-level and needs, and am hard-working and adaptable in finding new and appropriate ways to get the required results for each individual.
I regularly ask for detailed feedback on my own performance as an educator, and on the students' experience as learners in order to fine-tune my activities to optimise outcomes.
I "do my homework" each week, too! I am also happy to be available (as appropriate) for brief telephone, e-mail, or e-conferencing consultations between face-to-face sessions to facilitate the learning experience.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Education is a great gift and can be a wonderful experience under the right conditions for teacher and learner.

I love expressing creativity through learning and understanding new things, and strive to excel in sharing my unique insights and in helping others to succeed in all their educational goals
