Approach

I understand the need to put students at ease when studying potentially intimidating subjects and try to encourage students to fulfill their potential by working hard and by learning to enjoy their studies. It's important that students don't view their exams as simply a memory test, but as a way to demonstrate problem-solving principles using estimation, pattern recognition and visualization skills. Powerpoint presentations, and past papers are often reviewed during sessions. I am exam-focused, and can supply extra important insights on the subject from, for example, a commercial perspective. Online tuition may be provided via Skype / email. Having access to a range of high quality, interactive educational materials and tools (including educational software packages such as 'Mathematica 8' / 'MathCad') facilitates the provision of an engaging learning experience. I have a wide selection of high quality children's fictional story books (by Disney, Roald Dahl, Dr. Seuss, and Julia Donaldson) and activity packs (phonics dominoes, geometric shapes, and Play-Doh), write-on clocks, comprehension cards for all primary reading levels, introductory science kits, rock/fossil/gem packs, fractions jigsaws and blocks, play mats, 'Secret Scholar' booklets, a wide range of Science story books from the 'Science Works' series by Jacquie Bailey, detailed notes and presentations on dozens of texts currently studied for CfE National and Higher English, and dozens of sample critical essays. I often refer students to the 'BBC Bitesize', 'Glow', 'TES' and Herriot Watt 'Scholar' sites as well for further source material and also adapt resources as required. I have all required up-to-date textbooks (by publishers including TeeJay, Leckie and Leckie, Heinemann and Bright Red in addition to university publishers such as Oxford University Press), revision books and decades worth of past papers and solutions. Showing students how to go about efficiently planning, constructing and proof-reading their essays (making sure that they fully understand any essay requirements) are key priorities. I have experience in carrying out English as a Foreign Language (ESL) assessments and customized learning programs. I adapt course materials to fit any specific needs of the student, and am pro-active in identifying any associated potential problems which may be holding back a student e.g. relating to the organisation of revision materials / schedules. I can assist with personal statements for UCAS guideline-compliant applications and have a range of sample statements for applications for a variety of specific subjects. I am very familiar with the requirements of the new CfE courses and have extensive resources directly relating to this e.g. I have full sets of teaching resources, homeworks, practice NABs and prelims etc currently used by secondary schools to teach the CfE. I also have resources on the "New" Higher Maths as well as the "Revised" Higher Physics courses. Tuition and resources are also available for exam boards including AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC, Eduqas, WAEC, and CCEA.
