Hello, my name is Kojin, a first-year Cambridge student studying Human, Social, and Political Science! I am Japanese, but I have lived in Florence, Italy all my life. Through my prior experience tutoring maths and Japanese, I think an informal, friendly environment is crucial to maximising smooth communication and growth in students. Active learning is the best kind of learning, and I cannot achieve this by being a stiff teacher who stuffs information into the minds of the students for the entire hour. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact me outside our tutoring hours, whether to tell me about your academic progress, your college application, or just about anything really! The two main subjects I intend to teach are IB History and IB English Language and Literature. I am especially passionate about them as studying these two subjects gave me a clear advantage in academic essay writing. I strongly believe that a well-focused, elegant writing-style will be a great benefit for your time at top-tier universities around the world, regardless of the subject you intend to study. Through my tutoring of the two subjects, I will try my best to equip you with critical thinking necessary for establishing an original approach, as well as an argumentative writing format which would set your tone to an academic one. I will also be offering courses in Maths and Chemistry, both at Standard Level. Due to my previous experience, I have a solid grasp in teaching Maths. For Chemistry, arguably a more content-based subject requiring a lot of memorisation, we will go over various studying methods to come up with an efficient plan suited for you!

My lessons will be structured by allowing lots of time for the student to ask questions to help the learning process. I will also end every lesson with a useful task/question for the student to answer to help consolidate their understanding prior to the next lesson. I hope progress will become apparent, but I think regular mini tests are also important to ensure understanding and help show areas that can be improved upon. Allowing the student to go over material in their own time after the lesson I believe is key for them to develop a solid understanding of the subject.
