As an alumna of Chesham Grammar, I have experience of learning in a highly academic environment. I know what selective schools are looking for in their potential students and I work hard to ensure all students reach their full potential.
I went on to read English and Drama BA (Hons) at Goldsmiths University of London, before going into teacher training at UCL's Institute of Education, passing the PGCE with distinction. I am currently completing my Masters Degree in Education (MEd) from UCL's Institute of Education and will be awarded as Master of Education as of 2018.
I have taught English to girls and boys of all abilities from Years 7-13 in both selective and non-selective secondary schools across London and have had experience of tutoring primary school children. I have most recently taught English Literature and Language GCSE, as well as A Level English Literature, at the London Oratory School for boys with outstanding results. I have experience working with the new (9-1 grading) exam syllabus for GCSEs and have worked with both AQA and OCR exam boards for GCSEs/IGCSEs and A Levels. I have an extensive bank of resources, teaching materials and pedagogical knowledge.
A baseline assessment will be given at the start of tuition to assess each student's strengths and weaknesses and to plan a scheme of lessons across a negotiable amount of time. It is important to set clear learning objectives and outcomes at the beginning of the programme of study and to make sure these objectives are regularly met.
I will tailor all lessons to the individual child's needs, always factoring in clear learning goals so that the student shows progress across time. It is important for students to grow in confidence and to enjoy the lessons therefore I use praise and give clear targets to engage even the most reluctant students fully. I am always on hand to liaise with parents about homework or reading materials and to make sure both student and parent are satisfied with the progress being made.
