My name is Denis and I am currently studying at Imperial College University London. Studying Biomedical Engineering has allowed me to develop knowledge in a broad range of scientific areas from electrical circuits to the biological molecules and processes that occur on microscopic levels. And over time, I have come to understand that there are core principles and concepts across all subjects that when learned make them easier and, more importantly, fun to learn!
I also remember the stress and pressures that accompanies any assessment or exam, and like you, didn’t particularly enjoy doing them. However, using my own techniques, I learned to remain calm, think methodically to tackle problems and manage my time efficiently in order to get where I am today. And these are the skills that I want to pass to all my students. Having been tutored once too, I understand more than most that a one to one session can make a very hard concept seem easy, completely changing how I approached questions and exams. I take it as my responsibility to make sure that all my students can feel the same and achieve the results they want to get into any educational institution they want.
My sessions will be structured so that all students get the help that they require. The first session will consist of discussing the areas in which the student would like to improve and the methods of teaching that they respond to. Every student is different and therefore I am flexible in my teaching techniques to accommodate for everyone. The rest of the first session and any afterwards will be covering one or two topics. I will begin by teaching the core principles and foundation of the topics before going into how to apply the equations or theories in examples. Where possible I will teach the general method in which to tackle common questions that crop up on topics.
As we progress we will go over past paper questions (specific to the exam board of a particular student) until the student is confident in their abilities. At the end of the session we will briefly discuss which topic the next session will be on and in the meantime I will gather the materials required. I will also be able to provide “homework sheets” upon request that will test the student. Nearing the end of a chapter or subject I will also suggest doing a test to monitor progress. Of course I am open to any questions and in fact encourage the student to ask questions on things they are uncertain on so that the student can be completely satisfied.
We only take tutor applications from candidates who are studying at the UK’s leading universities. Candidates who fulfil our grade criteria then pass to the interview stage, where a member of the TiC team will personally assess them for subject knowledge, communication skills and general tutoring approach. About 1 in 10 becomes a tutor on our site.
