Personal Description:
I have an easygoing and pleasant demeanour, a nice sense of humour, and I generally get on well with my tutees. Although I like to have a friendly relationship with my tutee, I try to employ a professional manner at all times. I am a man in his early, middling years, who enjoys seeing others fulfil their potential.

Teaching Experience:

I am an experienced teacher, who has taught privately one to one for a number of years. I have primarily taught English on a one to one basis for tutees who are preparing for their GCSE and "A" level examinations, but I am also experienced in helping tutees improve their literacy skills from a young age. I also have a wealth of experience of teaching English as a Foreign language on a one to one basis. I have taught in a number of language schools over the years, and at one point started a language school in southern Italy. I have considerable experience teaching English up to "A" level standard in secondary education, and I have over fifteen years experience to draw upon.

Tutoring Approach:

One to one teaching, by its nature, is very intense, so it is very important to introduce variety as much as possible. A mixture of written work, as well as oral work, if required is essential to keep the tutee focused and interested in what you are teaching. It helps, sometimes, after an intense session, fot the tutee to have a short break, before continuing.

Personal Description:
I am an inspiring, qualified and experienced Spanish and French teacher. My enthusiasm and patience motivates pupils to achieve their full potential and to understand concepts they may struggle with in school. My years of experience as a classroom teacher has allowed me to try and test techniques to ensure pupils make progress from Year 7 to A-level and beyond.

Teaching Experience:

I qualified as a teacher in 2012 and I have taught French and Spanish from Year 7 to A-level in a secondary school since then. I have been a Sixth Form tutor and so helped pupils write UCAS references and prepared them for Spanish Oxbridge interviews. I fully understand the requirements for AQA and EDEXCEL exam boards for both the old and new GCSE and A-level. I regularly assess and monitor my students' progress and set them achievable targets. I am in regular contact with students' parents so they are aware of their child's progress and targets.
Prior to qualifying as a teacher I was an English as a Foreign Language teacher for 2 years and have tutored for a year.

Tutoring Approach:

I ensure lessons are tailored to meet individual needs and use a range of resources in each lesson. Pupils are set targets which they work towards and I guarantee that my tutees do make progress. Lessons are engaging and cover all four skills; reading, writing, speaking and listening as well as grammar. In addition, I expect pupils to complete independent learning tasks (homework) so they can make the most of tutor contact time.

Personal Description:
I am a professional actor and graduate from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, and have been working in the private tuition industry for over seven years for various agencies, most prominently The Tutors Group. Before drama school I worked as a Primary School teaching assistant and drama teacher for two years, after graduating from King's College London with a 2:1 in my BA (Hons) English Literature & Language degree. I went straight to university from Norwich High School for Girls in Norfolk. So I have travelled all the way across England in my pursuit of study! I always wanted to tutor because I knew how I worked for all my GCSEs, A-Levels and my BA, and I was fed up with the media claiming exams were getting easier for kids: teenagers today work super hard, as I did! Tutoring older students also provided a lovely contrast to my Primary School teaching. I am also on the Directory certified teachers for LAMDA examinations.

Teaching Experience:

Dog Kennel Hill Primary School
Teaching Assistant and Special Needs Support
Oct 2008 - Present

During the morning session, I am currently working in a Year One class in this south London school and thriving on aiding the children specifically with their literacy, reading and speaking skills as well as exploring numeracy work.
I lead certain lessons including story time and circle time.
I support key groups of children within the class and am able to use my initiative to plan, deliver and assess their learning in order to encourage progression.
I have vast experience in creating my own resources using ICT, and creating artistic displays to proudly exhibit the children's work.
I have taken courses in Early Literacy Support, encouraging creative and inclusive teaching especially for children with English as an additional language and complex special needs children. I also have training in "Letters and Sounds" Phonics, and "A First Workshop on Autism".
During the afternoon session, I support a child in Year Two with Autism. I plan and prepare all his lessons, working towards targets which I and the class teacher have set for him; these include phonics, counting and social skills. I use music as a reward system for the boy, and his singing has greatly improved his speech quality and communication skills.
I have extensive training in Autistic Spectrum Conditions, undertaken with Southwark, covering various aspects including history, sensory integration and behavioural management.
I work with various children with complex special needs within school, including children with Autism, Cerebral Palsy and Galactosemia, and have worked closely with speech and language therapists and learning mentors.
I offer one to one support outside of lesson time in the form of music lessons for special needs children; I prepare and provide my own resources and find singing with my students extremely rewarding.
I am in the process of setting up an after-school drama club for Key Stage One students at the school, having directed the infant school Christmas play this and last year.
I have also spent time in Key Stage Two classrooms, focussing on aiding older children with their literacy skills: I particularly enjoyed aiding Year Six students in exploring literary themes and using appropriate critical vocabulary when studying children's literature.

Stage Coach Theatre Arts
Early Years and Drama Teacher
Jan 2009 - Present
I am currently working in the Beckenham Junction branch of Stage Coach: using games and prepared resources, I teach my Early Stages children elementary levels of dance, drama and singing, allowing them to develop their confidence levels both on and off the stage. I have written and directed several productions for the children to perform over the year, showcasing their talents to their proud parents.
Since September I have taken on the role of drama teacher for the elder children aged six to sixteen. Through games, improvisation and text work, my students are encouraged to enjoy and improve their passion and talent for theatre in an open and safe environment.


The Tutors Group
Private Tutor
Sep 2008 - Present
In contrast to my primary school teaching experience, my private tutoring allows me to help young people of an older age and greater intellectual development further their learning.
I teach English Literature and Language, History, Theatre Studies and Classical Studies, from Primary, to GCSE and A-Level, Degree level and beyond.
I aid my students in improving their essay structure, spelling and grammar and discussing key thematic and conceptual elements of their required texts.
I plan and prepare lessons and constantly assess students, ensuring they receive high quality tutorage.

Classroom Teachers
Teaching Assistant
Sep 2008 - Oct 2008
I received thoroughly positive feedback from the schools in which I temporarily taught in the weeks preceding my permanent employment at Dog Kennel Hill; colleagues reported me as reliable, enthusiastic and hard-working, and possessing excellent interaction skills with the children themselves.
I gained vast experience with nursery and reception children, thriving on working with early years.

Tutoring Approach:

I have worked as a private tutor for various agencies and also independently, leading my students through 11 plus, 13 plus, GCSE, A Level, Degree level and beyond. I teach English Literature & Language, Drama & Theatre Studies, History and Classics. I also have plenty of experience in working with much younger students (see my CV for details of my classroom and teaching assistant experience) with English as an additional language. I am a confident and enthusiastic individual, with an acute passion for teaching, and have been working with the Tutors Group for over 7 years now. I have worked as a teaching assistant in an Outstanding inner-city primary school, and before training at drama school was planning to take a post-graduate course in primary school teaching, a desire much encouraged by my class teacher and head of school. I have just graduated from my MA in acting at one of the most prolific drama schools in the country (Bristol Old Vic Theatre School); as an experienced dramatic performer and director, I enjoy effectively using these skills to aid children in their learning, leading to a warm, encouraging and happy learning atmosphere. I rapidly and easily create positive, personal relationships with colleagues and children, and believe education should be a creative and inclusive experience for all.

Personal Description:
After graduating from Trinity College Oxford with a first class Masters in Engineering I reflected upon the opportunities education had afforded me, the horizons it broadened and the skills it had developed. It was such a valuable gift I decided to teach. I have also had a broad range of other career experience from healthcare to investment banking, this helps me to offer practical advice and guidance to A Level students considering their career.

Teaching Experience:

I've now taught in a variety of schools from an inner-city London school to more recently completing a period as Head of Physics in the Middle East. I now work as a Physics teacher at a top independent school is West London. I have tutored for over seven years, gaining increasing satisfaction from watching young peoples' mind develop and confidence grow.

I am an exam board examiner and moderator, which is a great insight into how to prepare pupils for examinations as well as address their wider educational needs. Education is a crucial part of any persons' life and as such I approach tutoring with both rigour and passion!

In addition to helping student achieve their best grades at GCSE, IGCSE and A Level, I have also been successful in tutoring students for common entrance. I have helped students secure places at Winchester, Westminster and Eton.

Tutoring Approach:

Building self confidence and fostering a love for the subject is my overall aim. To do this I endeavour to establish a close working relationship with each tutee based on trust and their confidence in me to facilitate their exam success as well as address their wider educational needs. Thought process, rather than content, lies at the heart of my ambition to develop self sufficient learners yet I appreciate than content and technique cannot be understated when preparing for exams.

Personal Description:
A postgraduate student at Cass Business School, studying Actuarial Science. Just graduated from University of Manchester with Mathematics with Finance.
As a native speaker of Mandarin and Cantonese, I grew up in Hong Kong and had been studied in Malaysia for 2 years and Hong Kong for the rest. In addition, I have 2 younger sisters as a eldest brother and therefore I do well in tutoring. In my past Foundation year, I gained A* in Pure Mathematics, and A* in Business Mathematics and A in Computer. I am convinced that my academic achievement makes me a good fit in tutoring Mathematics for GCSE/A-Level students.

Teaching Experience:

In past, in Hong Kong and Malaysia, I tutored friends and anyone who were around me in Mathematics, which gave me loads of chance to enhance my teaching approaches.
I taught in Manchester last 2 years as well.

Tutoring Approach:

I would be more than happy to go trough past exam papers and exercises as for Maths with students.
Surely, to prepare notes and advice certain study skills for the students in Mathematics. I reckon that tutoring in a friendly manner would enhance learning process instead of forcing the student to do as said. You are more then welcome to have a briefing before the first tuition in order to make sure we have the same goal.

Personal Description:
I have done My M.sc. Physics & M.Sc. Mobile and Satellite Communications. I studies Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics as major subjects in B.Sc. I am a passionate teacher and well aware of the teacher student relationship.I understand students difficulties in understanding difficult concepts and know how to help them understand.

Teaching Experience:

I am teaching GCSE/A Level students from previous seven years. I have prepared my own exam based helping material for students which proves really helpful for them. Most of my students get A/A* grades.

Tutoring Approach:

Well the purpose of hiring a tutor is to understand concepts which a student neither can understand in a class nor himself/herself.Only tutoring gives a student one to one attention of the teacher and thus better understanding.
My approach is to both, develop concepts and help the students to get good grades as well, as both are important.Teaching students how to attempt the questions in exams.I am quite a friendly person and never get irritated.I am ready to teach a difficult concept 10 times to a student until he understands

Personal Description:
I am a very succesful teacher with over 25 years classroom experience and have held senior positions (leading faculties of maths/science and science/technology) in schools. I also have over ten years experience as a home tutor.

Teaching Experience:

I have served as an assistant teacher, head of physics, head of science and head of faculty in comprehensive schools where my subjects have included all the sciences, seperate and combined, plus maths up to GCSE and Physics to A-level. I have also been ICT co-ordinator and a tutor for a youth theatre group. I have further middle school experience, extending my teaching at KS2 and 3 to include Design and Technology, Art, English, Humanities and games whilst continuing my initial specialisms, sciences and maths.
Over the last ten years I have been tutoring, working for the County Access and Inclusion service Medical Education Team as a sciences and maths specialist where I teach the full age and ability range from KS3 to KS5 and also work as a private tutor.

Tutoring Approach:

Lessons are friendly and informal, tailored to your needs and learning style. I use a variety of approaches and techniques and a mix of traditional and digital media. I engage, challenge, amuse, encourage, but never bore. It is absolutely right to have fun while learning, it helps the knowledge to stick. My students achieve outstanding results and I can supply plenty of excellent references from parents, tutees and professional colleagues.

Personal Description:
Hi there! My name is Will, and I'm a graduate from the University of Cambridge (Christ's College). I studied Natural Sciences, and graduated with a 2.1 MSci specialising in Physics. I studied Maths, Physics and Chemistry at A-levels, and French at AS.
Maths and Physics can be daunting for many young people, yet I believe that anyone can learn to master these subjects if taught to look at the problems in the right way. All that is required is an underlying interest and an enthusiastic teacher!
I work during the week, but I am free in the evenings as well as all day on the weekends.

I am also open to giving INTERVIEW PRACTICE for anyone thinking of applying to OXBRIDGE or one of the many other institutes that demand an interview. Having been in several interviews myself, I can give advice on how to answer general questions, as well as give example questions from my experiences.

Teaching Experience:

I have tutored before in my school; I was part of the Mentoring Society from year 11 onwards, in which I taught younger years (especially those taking their GCSE exams). I have also been a voluntary tutor for The Access Project for the past year, tutoring A-Level Physics.

Tutoring Approach:

I'm a very relaxed person, and so I am open to tutoring in many different ways depending on the personal choice of the tutee. I am willing to explain a particular topic, or go through questions that have been answered before the session. However, I would say that working through past papers is usually the most effective way to practice and also identify the areas in which the tutee is having difficulties. My only request is that I'm told beforehand which area/questions/past paper we should work through, to give me time to prepare!

Personal Description:
As a British Chinese, I spent my childhood in China until I was 11 when my family moved to London. I found the pace of study of mathematics at my state school to be too slow for my curiosity. From the age of 12, I self-taught mathematics until university. During this period, I completed my GCSE maths with A* at the age of 12, A-level maths at 14 with a score of 599/600, A-level further maths at 16. For A-level studies, I completed 7 A-levels (Maths, Further Maths, Music, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Business Studies) and AS-level in ICT, all at my inner city state school. I went on to study Mathematics at Imperial College, graduated with first class honours and my final year exam results ranked first in my year - it is something I aim to teach my students.

I worked for a number of years for a finance firm in the City of London. At the same time, I have been tutoring since I was 18. My tutoring spread through recommendations, and I still have a number of long term tutees. I have always found tutoring to be most satisfying and fulfilling, especially when I witness students' progress from bafflement to appreciation, and eventually achieving their aspirations. Now I have decided to become a dedicated full time professional tutor, and has been doing so for last three years.

Teaching Experience:

I have done a great deal of one-to-one maths tuitions, more than 60 students over the last ten years and more than 5000 hours. Almost all the tuition is in mathematics, although sometimes I also help with sciences at the same time. Most of my previous students have been introduced to me by way of recommendation, a few found me from uktutors site, I have not had the need to advertise else where. I have tutored maths at GCSE, A-level, and also tutored Further Maths. All my students have done very well in their maths exams, so far all A's and A*'s, they have had offers and gone to top universities, including: Oxford, UCL, KCL, Warwick, Cardiff.

Past student / parents references are available upon request, in fact most of them would be happy to speak to you. And I will forward as many references as you reasonably require. I also have a long list of previous student highlights, too long to put here, but available upon request.

New from this academic year 2015, I also offer grade A guarantee for A level maths, with reimbursement if the guarantee is not met. I take pride and responsibility for my student's grades! Probably more than they do!

My teaching experience started from myself, as I self-taught maths until university. In order to master my subject by myself, I read many text books and assimilate the best ideas and methods of each. In the end, I summarized the best methods, which are often starkly intuitive and widely applicable. With these unique methods, a focus on deep intuitions and my own enthusiasm, the passion I have for maths is often transferred to my tutees. I am also of the philosophy that if a topic does not feel easy for a tutee, then that is my problem, not theirs. Then I would strive to find a better way to allow my tutees to understand the topic as I do, and feel as easy as I do.

Tutoring Approach:

My tutoring approach is one of efficiency and clarity. Efficiency and clarity means that I will be able to cover a vast amount of material in a short period of time, while not sacrificing clarity and understanding for my pupils. Students are required to learn most of the methods available for any topic. Where possible, I will emphasize the why something works the way it does as well as how to use it. All these are to help pupils to develop a deep understanding and appreciation for the subject, as well as best equip them for exams. All these can still be achieved efficiently and at speed! My pupils are usually surprised at how much we can cover and how well they can understand something at such speed. The efficiency and clarity can be achieved because I make it my goal to deliver the clearest ideas to my students as efficiently as possible. This is what I spend time doing when I am not tutoring. Along the way my students will benefit from many new ways of thinking on many topics which are not found on text books or anywhere else, which give them an edge in exams. Final note, I usually cover everything, and in advance, which will allow the student to have school lessons as revision class.

In addition, when I take someone on, it is naturally my goal to help motivate them along the way. If a tutee isn't doing enough work, I will take an active role to encourage and motivate the student to work harder. To me it is all part of what I do, if the thing that is stopping a student achieving is their habits or time management, then I will help them deal with it too.

Finally, I place great importance in maintaining a positive relationship with the tutees. Before any tuition start, we would have an informal chat with parents and student to establish how the student would like me to help him or her. It is most important that the student understand that I am here to help them achieve their goals, not that of the parents goals. This will allow us to start from a good basis to form a positive relationship in order to help the student.

Final notes:

Personal Description:
I'm a native Polish speaker, Southampton graduate and a student of the University of Amsterdam. I'm talkative and approachable, passionate about languages and society.

Teaching Experience:

Over 3 years of steady tutoring experience. I've conducted both long term language courses as well as short ones for weddings and holidays. I've taught adults, university students and GCSE-level pupils. My main focus is on individual tutoring but I also have classroom experience and I'm happy to engage with groups.

Methods I've used span from conventional book-style approach, flexible course formed in co-operation with a student (choice of topics, methods, material, focus) to theme-specific conversation.

Tutoring Approach:

My priority is to make personalised lessons, focus them around interests, preferences and needs of each student. I use variety of materials (books, newspapers, songs, films, photographs, games, additional grammatical and vocabulary exercises). I adjust pace and method of introducing new information and skills to fit individual needs.

Language is a practical skill and I aim to give you the ability to communicate with your Polish friends, partners and co-workers. I also see language as a gateway to culture and I'm happy to complement lessons with insight to interesting and unique parts of Polish life.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, I respond quickly :)


Reference:

'Ewa has taught me Polish for over a year now. She's made a lot of effort to ensure that the lessons are well-tailored to my needs. She's very conscientious and always well-organised, but also flexible and has a good balance between being professional and teaching in a relaxed manner. I feel like I've made a lot of progress under her tutelage and always enjoy my lessons, so would happily recommend her to others.' Sam, 29

Personal Description:
Teaching .. my true vocation in life. If someone was to ask me what is the best thing that I can do with my life, I would answer without any doubt "Teaching". I love teaching and learning at the same time, in fact, I usually say that I cannot remember a day in my life without studying or learning something new.

I consider myself reliable, methodical, punctual with friendly manners and empathic.

Teaching Experience:

Today I am teaching Spanish at Hinckley & Nuneaton College, collaborating with Sidney Stringer Academy (GCSE) and I have recently completed my Diploma in Education and Training at the University of Warwick, which has allowed me to apply for QTLs.

I have enjoyed teaching Spanish to people of all ages, the youngest being just 4 years old and the oldest being over 70. I teach all levels, from complete beginners, young learners, GCSE, A' Level or degree level as well as adults wishing to learn a few phrases for holidays or business trips, or people who plan to live in Spain.

I have a large experience in several Public High Schools in Spain and in private education as well.

I taught in an Adult Education Public Centre where I prepared the access exam to University (Literacy, Maths and Science).

In addition, I taught several modules of programming: J2EE, PHP, C++ POO, C, PL/SQL, MySQL and Oracle DDBB. I developed web applications including shopping cards, using Mode-View-Controller architecture pattern, PDO, Sql, Singleton pattern, OOP, CSS, Dreamweaver, Html, XML, Doxygen, UML …etc. I have a Master Degree in Java and I developed websites with Struts, Ibatis, Spring, JSP, JQuery ....

Furthermore, I taught Spanish language to Erasmus Students in my country.

Tutoring Approach:

I make my lessons as interactive and enjoyable as possible using all kind of activities, flashcards, games, music, art and stories. It is amazing how quickly children, teenager and adults pick up the language in a natural way, without stress. I try to teach not only a language but also the Spanish lifestyle, cuisine, customs and culture.

I have had experience working in both the public (5 years) and private sectors (6 years) of education and have taught students of different age groups which has enabled me to develop the skills and abilities required to be able to encourage and promote the students best potential. I am able to set priorities, identify problems and focus my attention and energy on resolving these issues. Most importantly, I like to find new and creative ways of teaching that motivate and encourage the students to learn in an enjoyable and challenging environment.

A good classroom session is never the result of improvisation or chance, so, I have made this my motto "90 percent of transpiration, 10 percent talent" for organizing, planning contents, goals, time, procedures and of course paying special care and attention to diversity in the class, adapting myself to the real needs of the pupils.

Spanish language is a beautiful and useful language because of the growing populations and economies of many Spanish-speaking countries and their growing international tourism as well. I love my mother language and I like to teach it to you. In person, with Skype ...everything is a good idea if you want to learn ... because, where there is a wish there is a way...

Personal Description:
I am a conscientious, patient, enthusiastic, sociable and highly motivated person who is reliable, responsible and hard working. As a teacher of italian I can say that I chose to do this job because I like to know about languages and different culturures and during long years of travel around Europe and Middle East, I realized that languages are important to tie people in the world. I have an excellent knowledge of my mother language which is Italian, the grammar an also of the different dialects that are scattered throughout Italy. I am courious to find differences between words, to know historical reasons and development of languages. Italian is a beautiful language, the sound is warm, like a song and during the last years I have found hundreds of people that want to learn it. That is why I decide to teach,people want to be able to talk with anyone, whatever their nationality. For me languages teaching is synonymous with cultural exchange: by fostering and interest in language, we stimulate intercultural awareness and empathy for others. I taught italian to different people with different ages, cultural background( arabic,bengali,european) and different life experiences and I developed excellent communication and interpersonal skills and the proven ability to achieve targets and results following a personal method depending on difficulties and abilities to facilitate their learning.
Amongst my many hobbies are several sports, including football, run, volleyball and high jump.
I love to write poetry, just because is my way to vent different feelings; reading, specially essays and middle eastern historical books.
I love to travel around the world and getting in touch with different cultures, in particular, I really like to know what differs from culture from the others as regard the social aspect of daily life and just as the food, language and family relations and interpersonal skills. I am really intrested in arabic culture.
I love to cook and try recipes from other countries.
I am very friendly so i love spend time with people and socialise and help them when they needed, specially during my teaching job even I always try to be professional.

Teaching Experience:

*Italian tutor freelance at all levels;
*Italian teacher trainee, London- UK
October 2014
I taught 10 hours of italian lessons as L2 during my training in CELTA (teaching italian as foreign language to adults) to beginner and total beginner classes level (A1) and intermediate level (A1.1/ A1.2)

I taught italian as L2 in a class of Bengali adults for a voluntary purposes association.

٭Translator freelance, Rome - Italy and London - UK
Constant and actual job on request.

Tutoring Approach:

I usually apply and i strongly believe in an inductive method "spiral" dividing the teaching materials in different lessons and working cyclically on the different levels of learning(written and spoken comprehension, writing production and oral production);
I give attention to details and needs of the students and how to work with different levels and different learning skills;
I alwaysprogram, before lessons, some activities with a detailed lesson plan and interactive material;
Use of grammar books when needed.

Personal Description:
As a child, I started developing passionefor languages by pretending to speak a different language to my dolls and singing in made languages too. I decided to study languages at UNIVERSITY because I believe that speaking other languages can take you everywhere. I am a bubbly persona nd very professional at the same time. I take any kind of commitment at heart and I stive to achieve the best in every situation. I am a punctual person a d serious regarding my job. I always see the brightest side in everyone and his contribute to my positive view of life. I love my job and I prioritise it. I am also motivated and self driven.

Teaching Experience:

I am a very passionate teacher of languages with years of experience in this field. I started teaching English privately in Italy, my native country, at the age of 16 and then carried on until the age of 24, when I moved to England. I graduated in Modern foreign Languages in Italy. In Bedford I took an Adult teaching certificate and taught ENGLISH as a foreign language. I am currently teaching Italian and Spanish in a secondary school at GCSE and A level levels. I also enjoy private tutoring as part of my teaching role. I am able to cater or all abilities as every student is an individual with different needs and learns at a different pace.

Tutoring Approach:

When contacted, I always contact the leaner back and arrange a meeting. I tend to be quite flexible anc accomodating as I understandsthe difficulties During the first lesson, I try to establish what the individual needs, the learners' goals so that when planning my lesson, I can take these information into account. My approach to tutoring varies according to the age of the learner and his/her prior knowledge of the language or the La ckof it. During my tutorials, I offer a variety of resources and I adopt different teaching style in response to the type of learner. I also set homework as a part of the part of the individual lerning. This is an incentive to boost their confidence in te language they are learning. I really love teaching and sharing my knowledge.

Personal Description:
MA in English Language, PGCE, experienced examiner of GCSE English Language for AQA exam board (5 years). I have been teaching for six years and have been awarded outstanding by Ofsted in school inspections. I can tutor GCSE English Language and/or Literature, English Grammar, and entrance exams. I am passionate about my subject and I also like to use it as a vehicle for students to explore morals, ethics and identity; I am most happy when I feel I am teaching students core skills, as well as broadening their knowledge of our rich history or important current affairs.

Teaching Experience:

I am a graduate of the Teach First programme. Teach First is a charity that tackles educational disadvantage by placing graduates in schools which are in challenging circumstances. As a result of this, I had to learn how to plan and deliver lessons that were fun and engaging, as well as educational. Many of the students in my classes were behind because the school hadn't been able secure permanent staff, so I also had to learn how to accelerate their progress quickly, if they were to have any hope of reaching their true potential. I signed up to examine English Language at GCSE for AQA and this was certainly helpful, as I was able to give my students a big insight into the skills that were required and the mistakes that were often made. I have been an examiner for the last five years, so my knowledge and experience here would certainly benefit someone about to start in year 11. I am passionate about making English as a subject relevant and I am lucky that English provides a lot of opportunities for that; I can teach the core skills using texts from contexts that students will relate too, which really helps to build confidence and maintain engagement. I am currently teaching in a prep school in Sevenoaks because I wanted to see a different side of the education system.

Tutoring Approach:

I will always aim choose engaging texts for my tutees to work with because I want the sessions to be engaging as well has educational, especially if this is an extra session on top of all the lessons in school.

I think it is important to break down core skills like 'analysis' and 'evaluation', so that students actually understand what is required of them. Often, students are asked to 'explain' and analyse and their students have no idea what this actually means or how to do it. I have tried and tested resources, which will support my tutee and help them to do this.

I think it is important to encourage independence in any tutee, but we can't just expect it to happen, just because we have asked. I feel that modelling good outcomes and the writing process, as well as asking students to critique their own work and the work of others is key in helping students to be more independent. This is something I have achieved in a classroom setting and so, I am confident that I can help a tutee to do the same.
