My specialist subjects are History and Business Studies. I also teach Religious Studies, Psychology and Philosophy. For me, tutoring is a highly rewarding process and I enjoy helping young people achieve academic excellence. I aim for maximum interaction with the student during lessons, because a conversational teaching style is the best way to sustain the students attention and encourage sincere engagement with the subject material. As regards my teaching technique, I always adapt my teaching methods to the students specific needs and, most importantly, try to equip them with self-learning tools so they could gain confidence in their potential and abilities.
