Scarborough Tutor

I am currently studying for a second Masters at the University of York. I also work for a children's charity that encourages educational attainment in children from less well off families. I run a kids' club after school and during the holidays alongside my studies and my private tutoring work.

Tutoring Experience

I began working with children aged 3-7 years at a school in Ecuador whilst I was on a placement year at University. When I returned home I took up a position as a private tutor working with disadvantaged children in Greater London. I have worked in the private education sector for the last 5 years, teaching both at an international school in Abu Dhabi, and more recently at a school here in the UK. Although I began teaching Primary years, I now teach secondary and further education.

Tutoring Approach

I enjoy learning and I like others to feel the same about the subjects they are studying. I believe one of the best ways to learn is to appreciate the relevance and application of a topic beyond its use in the classroom. I often appeal to current situations or popular culture and media in order to illuminate a subject. I have used hip hop in lessons on war poetry, Premiership football for English language topics, and Eastenders in a discussion on the Boer War. Most of all, I want to inspire confidence and self-belief in my pupils so that they realise their potential and exceed their own expectations.
