I am currently working as a self employed tutor and have had previous experience working with children of all ages from 10 months old to 18 years. I am a 33 year old university graduate with a BA hons degree. I love working with children and enjoy teaching. I live in Redditch and own a car.
I am currently taking on students that are out of school on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday daytime. Students in school on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.
I have previously worked in a secondary school as a supply teacher and in a college for further education. Over the last four years I have been private tutoring English and Maths for children between 5 and 11 and I really enjoy it. I also teach foreign students English. I have also been teaching drama groups within theatres and schools. This includes writing plays for Youth Theatre groups. Last summer I lead a Beauty Skills workshop for years 9, 10 and 11 in local high schools.
I come from a family of professional teachers and teaching comes naturally to me. I believe one on one tutoring is the best way to ensure a child is learning and improving on the basics that is taught in schools. Classrooms can sometimes be overwhelming for children and reinforcing what they need to know in a calm and relaxed atmosphere can go along way in their development. After an assessment of a child, I then plan and prepare an individual learning plan, specifically driven to help with any weaknesses they may be experiencing and to develop their strengths. I also like to teach children how to learn so learning anything new in the future for that child is less daunting.
