Dr Michael J

I am a long-time teacher, lecturer, examiner and professional tutor with a patient, confidence-building approach. I have successfully taught at over ten schools, four major universities and hundreds of private students. I also hold qualifications in educational psychology and in supporting adult dyslexia. My approach is friendly, gentle and supportive but extremely professional. I aim to combine creative and emotionally engaging teaching with expert subject knowledge. At the heart of my tutoring is how important it is that a student believes in their own ability to learn and to progress. If there is one word I hear my students kindly use to describe my qualities it would be 'patience'. Yet I never feel like my patience is tested - I love the challenge of finding new, innovative ways to help them understand their subject. I enjoy music festivals, running and long walks with our dog Maple.
