I believe in a holistic style of education. Learning does not begin and end in the classroom; it is witnessed in the social interaction of students, ethos of community, and external curriculum of practical education. That is why tutoring is so integral to successful education.

A tutor must be more than simply an educational body. I am of a strong mind that tutoring is not simply the dictation of knowledge from one entity (tutor) to another (student). It is essential for the growth and development of the student that the tutor be a mentor, friend, and supporter. This must be demonstrated within the workspace on a regular basis. I am very dedicated to the academic achievement of all individuals. I am comfortable with the notion of assessing students’ academic progress (both in the formative and summative sense).

As a tutor I strive to ensure each student achieves a level of excellence in all areas of the subject. I feel the highest responsibility to ensure each student is given the best opportunity to succeed. This is supported by the continuous line of communication between tutors, students, and parents.

Being a tutor means that you need to be caring, understanding, resourceful, safe, imaginative, dedicated, enthusiastic, and most of all, passionate. I can ensure you that I am definitely all of the above and more. I can be flexible around the schedules of students and their families and am always willing to negotiate to ensure the best academic outcome for the child in question.
