Tutoring Style and/or Experience

Hello! My name is Louise and I am 21 years old. I am currently in my second year studying Psychology and Chemistry at St Andrews University. While i've been here I have also studied university level German, Physics and Statistics. I am easy to get along with and enthusiastic so I think I will make a good tuter!
I was considering becoming a teacher a few years ago so I actually have quite a lot of relevant work experience in this area. I was an assistant teacher in a primary school for three weeks so I have had practice at planning lessons and on different ways to teach subjects effectively. In this time I also worked with children of varied ages so I am also good at adjusting teaching techniques in accordance to age and ability.
I think it is important to have planned what you are going to teach before the lesson so you can utilise the time effectively, this especially applies to tutoring as the usual time span is only one hour. I would also prepare little exercises in the areas that the student is struggling so they can practise them in their own time.
