Tutored several high school and university students for over three years giving them excellent results with their subjects.
I typically provide a relaxed approach by looking through the syllabus with the student and explaining each dot point thoroughly as they encounter them, that way no students need to prepare anything. Will provide focused study sessions at developing a key-area which may need improving upon. often helping writing assignments for students. If possible will gather additional homework resources as well as past papers to further assist the student. I can be contacted after hours by phone or email if the student has any additional questions for help with their subject matter.
