Tutoring experience

I have spent the past six years tutoring a range of ages, from primary school children to adults, in subjects ranging from French to Biology to music. Most of my tutoring has been independent, but I have occasionally worked with agencies. I have always been passionate about my own learning and helping foster that same passion in my students is, to me, the most rewarding experience. My ultimate career goal is to become a lecturer, so I am constantly trying to grow and improve as a teacher and I find I often end up learning as much from my students as they learn from me.

I have tutored a number of students long term, including some with learning difficulties including autism, ADHD, audio processing disorder and dyslexia.
