Dear Prospective Pupil,
I am a well-rounded tutor with strong educational background, plus 15 years of real-world experience in marine biology, science research, and nature conservation projects in over 50 countries. I offer a firm foundation in the fundamentals of natural sciences, math, and social studies, and add a unique global and practical perspective to the curriculum, providing examples of how many of these subjects are used by scientists, researchers, and conservationists in the form of actual case studies. I am highly motivated and ready to help you learn and grow. As a father myself, I am sensitive to the needs of children and young adults, and I will tailor the curriculum and methods to the individual pupil.
Before we get ever get started with a lesson, I will want get to know you and make a connection. Whether your needs are short- or long-term in nature, the pupil-tutor relationship is an important one and I want to create a comfortable, safe, fun, and inspiring atmosphere from the start.
I'll sit down with you and listen to your expectations, likes and dislikes, and other pertinent information that will help us to establish clear goals for our sessions and create a road map to help guide us. Throughout our sessions, I will be monitoring our progress in informal ways, such as through observing energy level and demeanor, as well as using formal methods, like evaluations and practical exercises. I will also be evaluating myself, of course! I will provide a report after every session that summarizes the content and areas for further work or improvement. These will be invaluable for tracking progress over time. I also welcome your feedback, since I will want to continue to improve my teaching to help you achieve your goals.
Thank you for reading my profile, and I look forward to working together to help you achieve your goals.
