After identifying your learning goals, in line with your course requirements, and listening to you, I will set a few questions to identify what you already know and where your weaknesses are. I use a lot of questions to prompt thinking and check understanding. I can patiently revisit things as required. I also find online resources you can use in your own time to help your learning of key concepts.
If there is a Maths or programming assignment you are stuck on, I will help you and check your work.
I like to make the lessons fun, not daunting. I am really there for you or your child. Only when they succeed have I really succeeded.
I've successfully taught Maths for 2 years to both primary and high schoolers, having obtained top results myself. My gift is to make complex things simple. I adjust my teaching method to preferred learning style. I can help with assignments in both Mathematics and computer programming. I understand how to motivate and engage students - I have with my daughters plus kids at school. I speak a few languages and have worked with Asian people for whom English is not their first language.
Cancellation Policy: If you cancel on me with less than one day's notice two times or more, I may choose to drop you as a client.
