I am a qualified history teacher with over 6 years experience working in both secondary and primary schools in London. I have a history degree from the University of Reading which I graduated in 2010 with a 2:1
In addition to my History A level I also have A levels in English Language, Business Studies and Critical thinking.
I have been teaching history for fours years in a secondary school and also have the additional responsibility as Head of House.
Prior to that I worked as a teaching assistant for a year in a secondary school, as well as fulfilling the role for a year in a special needs primary school. I have lots of experience working with students with ADHD and autism specifically.
Outside of teaching I am a director of a community organisation which provides mentoring to 17-21 year olds. I have also set up and run a youth group for a number of years and I have also worked for the Tottenham Hotspur foundation as a mentor for young people with mental health difficulties. I have also worked extensively with 16-18 year olds with for NCS the past 4 years during the holidays as a enterprise practitioner.
I have a vast range of experience of working with young people from a variety of different backgrounds in a plethora of different settings which has helped me to quickly build rapport and identify each individuals specific strengths and weaknesses but also this has helped to develop strategies for a range of abilities and learning styles.
My approach is similar to that of which I have in a classroom.The students needs and success are my main priority. It is essential that the student and I build a rapport so that we can both identify and practice areas of weakness so that they can help to help build up their skills.
Given the subjects that I tutor I believe that both practice and creative ways of tutoring allow students to engage with the content to help bridge the gap. A fundamental aim of mine is to ensure that key core knowledge is embedded within the student and that skills are taught to consolidate and further stretch the student to ensure that they are prepared to tackle questions in all topics and areas as opposed to just 'teaching for a test'.
