I enjoy helping students realise that they are capable of learning how to find the answer to difficult questions/equations and that. There is nothing better than getting to the end of a lesson and having the student say that they now understand a topic or that they don’t dislike a subject as much as they had before because I was able to make it clearer for them. I enjoy being the support students need to feel more comfortable when learning new things.

What are your top study tips for Students?
Take care of your study notes so that you can always go back to them to learn from. Always write down examples that are correct so that you can work out how to do similar problems. Keep trying. There are always going to be subjects/topics that are more challenging than others. Give yourself time and keep practicing until it becomes easier.
What are your top study tips for Parents?
Positive reinforcement. Celebrating your child’s academic achievements, no matter how small, builds their self-confidence and self-efficacy. Having the self-belief that they can do well at school makes them more likely to give new challenges another try. For maths, help your child practice their times tables. This does not have to be a time-consuming task. Simple counting in 3’s and 4’s on the way to school and sport practice will help them with all basic mathematics which is the foundation for more complex equations.
What book would you recommend to your Students?
I would recommend ‘The Book Thief’ by Markus Zusak. This book touches on some interesting topics and is written beautifully. One of the simplest and most enjoyable ways of learning how the English language works and expanding your vocabulary is by reading books.
