I am currently in my final year of university, studying Politics at the University of East Anglia. My interest for politics peaked in my first year of A-Levels (AS). I consider politics to feature in every aspect of life and being able to relay my knowledge to a younger generation, would be an absolute privilege.
My knowledge and understanding of English has advanced over the years. English is a skill that if nurtured properly, can benefit an individual to progress much further in life than their fellow peers.
I am hardworking, intuitive, determined and zealous and I am also a firm believer that failure only occurs when you give up. I take pride in helping others, who help themselves and I also have faith that if a pupil puts their mind to something, they can achieve just about anything.
I have been tutoring, all ages, for two years and I have a very successful background in leadership and guidance roles. This includes, my participation on my secondary school council board, which lasted the entirety of my high school years (Years 7-11).
During my time at college, I stood as Student Governor, where I sat on a private governing board, advocating on behalf of 2000 students.
I have been Vice-president of the African- Caribbean Society (ACS), at my university.
I am experienced, encouraging and unprejudiced and I have the assurance that I will bring my enthusiasm and leadership skills, to improve the quality of my students’ welfare and education.
Over the years, I was taught that if you do well in school then you will have the best chance to get a good job and earn a substantial amount of money. This is partially true. However, how many A's you achieve in school, does not necessarily equate to the amount of money you make in the future.
Many of us will go through ups and downs, especially throughout our time in education; consequently, school should be about learning and acquiring knowledge, not just how to pass an exam.
I would prefer to deter from this traditional belief and instil in young students that the type of person you are such as, the amount of willingness and determination you have, is what helps to achieve their aims and goals in life.
I, therefore, hope to teach and nurture students on how to harness important skills (needed for real-life situations) such as; developing a high proficiency in English, learning the importance of politics and governmental power and lastly, to create an environment that is best for them to study independently.
