Approach to Tutoring:

Lachlan is tenacious in inspiring students to be passionate about their subjects, helping them to realise their academic and intellectual potential. Lachlan begins by assessing the strengths and weaknesses of each individual student and from there, he carefully crafts a schedule suited to them, providing regular feedback on their work to ensure the student's improvement.

In the humanities, Lachlan’s experience has taught him that forward planning is integral to the success of both the student and teacher - being able to make a detailed timetable of when to prepare and learn essays and notes makes it much easier to improve a student’s work.

Moreover, Lachlan finds that communication is undoubtedly the most important element of effective tutoring and as a tutor, cadet, debater and athlete, Lachlan works effectively with others to ensure that all tutoring remains flexible, as he believes that it works best if it remains adaptable to the individual student.
