Yes, I am more than happy for your first class to be a free trial. The only thing I would ask is that you provide feedback if you do not wish to continue, so that I can make sure I improve in future!
In short, yes. I may be willing to do smaller group tuition if people get a group together. I find it is much more beneficial having students together in a classroom who ask questions and share knowledge. One on one tuition can result in students not getting exposure to the extra thoughts of others in the room. It allows people to gain a greater understanding through listening to the misconceptions of others.
One of the major reasons I give students practice tests or quizzes is to give them feedback, as well as gain feedback on my teaching. If students are getting the same questions incorrect, I must not have explained it properly, so it's something I need to readdress.
Of course I am open to feedback. I would love people to be honest and direct with me on how I can improve and what they think I can do to make my courses better.
Each week I will give out blank notes in the sessions. I will also email them. I will Give students who commit to the year a notes book, which includes all of my worked solutions for the year.
Many things. Of course there are other teachers similar to me, however, most won't work as hard for students as I do. I love working with and for students. I make myself available on the internet for help with a facebook group and email, regularly make videos, extra tests, questions and SACs for practice and make videos of exam solutions to teach students how to go about completing an exam in the allotted time. I also love to have fun with students. I am happy to have banter with students and love to find out more about my students outside of the classroom.
I would prefer people to attend all classes. If classes are missed, that's fine, but I would hate for another student to miss out because people continually fail to turn up.
Yes, I will run revision classes on holidays where students who are not enrolled in the courses may also attend. Regular students will a discount of course. The holiday classes will be used to run over course content already covered with more advanced questions and focusing on using the CAS as well.
