I have been teaching for 25 years and actively tutor online on a variety of well known European platforms for private lessons at primary, secondary and university levels for a wide range of students and professionals.
Holiday and peak time lessons are at a supplement. Shorter and longer lesson durations are available at different prices to my hourly rate. Please ask.
Review of essays and assignments and feedback is possible just with or without the student present. It is at my hourly rate (35 euros) short notice lesson are available at a supplement of 50%. Weekend lessons 8am-4pm are available. I have my terms and conditions that include what I do and time related activity and what is priority and extra to general lessons. This is to avoid miscommunication and give your work the time and effort you expect.
I proofread and highlight errors at the given stipulation of minimum of 25 comments. To do as a priority so as per 50% increase of my rate, or if you require more comment or corrections, then it is to be agreed ahead of me starting and the price will adjust accordingly.
While I believe strongly in tutor led expertise, the student should feel comfortable to ask any and all questions, develop their own curiosities and resolve and any doubts they may have. It is my personal belief that unless you can do something with clear process, it is not part of your current skill set. My job is to make it possible for you to understand and perform at the level required of what you want at the key time to demonstrate it whether that is solving an equation, explaining a theory or using accurately a grammar structure. Let me guide you to build your skills!!!
I'm creative and work with a wide variety of materials from standard revision techniques, to technology and exam skill memory tricks. I draw from multiple curricula, provide exam worked solutions, mark schemes and questions from both the UK, Irish and International exam boards. I believe in exam focused preparation with strong vocal and aural success. I have been involved in course writing an instructional design and love using innovative methods which are student centred and unusual that generate interest, motivation and engagement. Success is developed through past exam papers analysis and modelling clear answers to gain maximum marks in every instance. I set questions, and independent tasks during lessons and work consistently and methodically through revision topics and plan timelines for review and execute content tests to demonstrate progress.
In Business subjects, I take a practical repetitive approach to generating confidence and motivating partial self answering. I build confidence through working with weak areas and breaking down key concepts to increase understanding and knowledge in real world application to gain marks and increase grades.
