I love learning and have followed my interests into many different areas. With my master's degrees in History from University of St. Andrews (Scotland), MBA from University of Edinburgh (Scotland) and Masters in Education (specializing in ESOL), I feel qualified and equipped to tutor in a range of subject areas. After living for the past three years in Latin America I also feel qualified to help students with Spanish. Maybe your needs are in the areas of business studies, world history or ESL? Sometimes a student just needs help with studying and organizing their school life in general. I believe I can help.
When working with students I always remember that not everyone learns the same way or at the same pace. It's important for me to work out how to make the topic relevant, interesting and manageable for each student - we always learn more when we're interested. Maybe we'll use mind maps, whiteboards, make flashcards or come up with rhymes and memory techniques to make the learning just right for the student. There is no "one size fits all" approach in teaching.
More, effective studying isn't just about memorizing a bunch of facts. It's important to learn how to research, analyze, organize your arguments and then get it all down on paper. After many years of studying I feel I can help students organize their time, priorities and thoughts, with the result being effective study techniques and accomplished assignments or projects. With the right energy, approach and study skills students can be successful in all sorts of subject areas.
