Information About Andrea - Callington tutor - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Andrea:
English (Foreign Language)
I am married with two children who have recently left secondary school. I work as an English and Maths teacher at a local college and teach ages from 14 to adult. I also work with children requiring help with the 11+ entrance exam and with children/young people that have specific learning difficulties and behavioural problems. I am used to working with students that have dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety issues and autism. I enjoy teaching my subject specialisms but I specialise in building confidence and taking the anxiety out of learning.
I hold QTLS (qualified teacher learning status) and have a Certificate of Education (PGCE) alongside diplomas (Level 5) in English, Mathematics and ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages). I have been teaching at a local FE College for the past 9 years and have worked with a diverse range of students, abilities and ages. I also work with students with behavioural problems and learning difficulties at a local alternative educational institution. I am used to teaching towards Functional Skills, GCSE and 11+ examinations in English and Maths.
I use the humanistic approach and believe that learning and teaching are a two way process. I facilitate learning rather than didatic teaching and tackle any learning barriers that a student has, head on. I try to tackle any learning anxieties and keep the student calm and at ease throughout the lesson. I am very laid back with a good sense of humour and am completely unshockable!
