My approach varies depending on the student's needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encourage students to think for themselves, using real-world examples when possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move towards more complex areas as their confidence develops. Test preparation focuses more on exam-style or past paper questions to check, practice and perfect the student's understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but important skills such as essay structure and writing style, logical thought, time management and effect use of information.
