What do you enjoy most about being a tutor? 

I really enjoy interacting with students and finding exciting new ways to facilitate learning. Each cohort is different and bring a new energy and areas of interest. I also enjoy seeing students gain new knowledge and develop throughout their time within our centre.

Can you tell me a little bit about your teaching philosophy?

My aim it to focus on sessions that are enjoyable and engaging. I also believe in the need for students to be invested and motivated in their own learning and development. I use a lot of questioning and discussion, and aim to facilitate learning rather than just dispense information.
