I am a private tutor who has been working in this industry for 24 years. My first experience of teaching came as a PhD student where I had to teach a compulsory number of hours as a part of my own studies. Having developed an interest in teaching, I decided to join a tuition agency and teach in my spare time, initially as a financial support towards student life. However, I very quickly saw many weaknesses and limitations within the private tuition format and I felt that I could deliver better results for my students and their parents, whilst ensuring the student picked up skills which they could apply to all their subjects and not just the ones for which they were receiving tutoring. Over the years I have progressed into professional life, however, I am still very passionate about learning and teaching how to learn, my core subjects are the Sciences, Maths and English, however I now have access to a bank of other tutors to facilitate other subjects also. My driving force is the prospect of creating 'Eureka!!' moments for my students, where their studies start to fall into place. I currently tutor from my centre where I have the benefit of assistant tutors and teaching assistants to ensure my student gets the fullest support.
