I became a Tutornova Mentor because…

I believe it is a very good way for students to learn effectively.

 

One piece of advice for students with big dreams is….

When you are young you do not realise how much can achieve. You have time on your side and if you persevere you will be amazed at how well you can do. Persevere and you will surprise yourself.

 

I’d describe my teaching style as…

Traditional and thorough with regular checking of a student’s understanding.

 

My biggest challenge in high school was…

Organisation and recall.

 

I overcame this challenge by…

Developing excellent techniques for retention of knowledge and sound understanding. Becoming well organised was simply a case of putting things into a useful order and best done from the start.

 

If I could go back in time to when I was in high school I would tell myself…

With the benefit of hindsight I can say I would tell myself I shall succeed provided I follow a simple and effective approach that incorporates an understanding of how we learn and retain knowledge and skills.

 

I keep motivated through hard times by…

Knowing that the approach I have developed really works.

 

My philosophy is…

You can achieve great things with regular and effective learning.

 

My favourite productivity tool or app is…

Mind Maps and used well they work because they replicate the way the human brain works.

 

When I’m not teaching, I’m usually…

Playing tennis or golf, reading, travelling, using the more recent HIT approach to keeping fit.
