Experienced Primary Tutor/Teacher. Patient. Calm. Caring. Humorous.
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I've been teaching and tutoring roughly for fifteen years. I've mostly taught with some tutoring alongside. I do like tutoring a lot. It is the purest form of teaching because developing an intense working relationship allows for favourable progress to be made at a rapid and collaborative rate. :)
I'm going to cheat here and say what my favourite thing(s) are! Sorry! Firstly, I like to get to know my student(s) well; find out their likes and dislikes, their strengths and weaknesses. Then it's time to get learning, tapping into these areas and tailoring support towards the learner. Finally, I like to include some humour for good measure. It really helps in the learning process. :)
One particular example sticks out for me. Many have been academic, but the memory that sticks out the most is of a young girl, 10 years old, who really didn't enjoy physical activity. Then one term, with a lot of persistence, practise and drills, she was able to forward roll successfully. She pursued gymnastics following that period of teaching and learning and I never would have predicted that outcome.
Where do I go from here?
You can send Roshan A a message through Sherpa and they will usually get back to you within 24 hours. You'll receive an SMS and email notification when they do so.
How do the introductions work?
Sherpa gives you the opportunity to meet our tutors in a free 20 minute introduction, which takes place through the Sherpa classroom.
How do lessons work?
All lessons take place through Sherpa's online, industry-leading classroom. This is a combination of a collaborative, real time whiteboard and a video call, like Zoom.
