Additional information and experience - Jonathan W.

Originally from Singapore, I came to the UK, on my own, at 16 to a tutorial college in Croydon to study for my A levels in Biology,Chemistry, Physics and Maths on a 18 month course gaining AABB respectively and winning a place to study Medicine at Imperial College London.

This would have been impossible if I'd stayed home as I was not allowed to take up Biology at O levels in Singapore as I did not do well enough when I was 14 to enter into the set allowed to take 3 sciences and those doing 2 sciences were forced to take Chem/Physics. Today, I know that I wasn't just slow or stupid as my teachers had said. I had dyspraxia.

It is those experiences I had as a teenager that has made me the teacher I am today. That is one that understands that every child has their own way of learning, not being able to do something right now doesn't mean they will never be able to do it and that if you make learning fun, any person will be able to get it eventually. In other words, learning/teaching needs to be tailored to the learner.

In the initial meeting, I'll aim to find out the student's weaknesses, strengths, and general interests. If the aim is exam preparation, I will get the student to complete selected past year paper questions. This helps me find out what areas the student needs support with and also how I could present material in a way that will engage him/her. We will then agree a plan of action together. In on going sessions, I will also try to integrate and model key study skills such as mind mapping, taking concise notes, memory tricks etc. There will be quizzes either oral or written at the end of each lesson or start of the following lesson to check how much learning has been made. The student will then be ask to evaluate their own progress and set targets for themselves.
