Mr Dylan Whitaker

Contact Dylan

I'm easy-going and personable and hope to bring my passion and excitement for learning and academia to my students. Being Dyslexic I've had my fair share of struggles both learning content, revising and performing in exams. Throughout my time in school and 3 years at university, I have built my own strategies and techniques for performing my best in exams. I hope I can share the knowledge and skills I have gained over time with others.

Approach to tutoring

Everybody learns in different ways. I aim not to deliver a set piece on the content but rather work with my students to help them find their own gaps in knowledge and understanding. I hope with a firm grip on the understanding myself I can help to fill those gaps as well as teaching my students how to retain the learning for exams.
