Anja maintains that the key to succeeding in STEM subjects is to understand the reasoning and thought processes behind the steps that you have to take to get the correct answer; in this way students can be certain that they will be able to understand and, more importantly, answer the questions that Cambridge will conjure up for their final examinations. Anja also employs empathy and patience when it comes to her tutoring, seeing as each student’s circumstances are different and as such each student should be tutored in such a way that suits their specific needs. Tutoring is more than just conveying understanding - as a tutor Anja also offers her emotional support to students to help them establish the confidence that will allow them to achieve the results they are striving for.
