Christine

East Boldon Tutor

I HAVE BEEN A PERSONAL TUTOR NOW FOR 15 YEARS, HELPING PUPILS FROM PRIMARY TO GCSE LEVEL.SOME OF MY PUPILS HAVE ACTUALLY STAYED WITH ME THROUGH ALL THESE STAGES AROUND 8 YEARS IN TOTAL. I ENJOY TUTORING PUPILS AND SEEING THEM PROGRESS THROUGH THE YEARS TO OBTAIN EXCELLENT MATHS SKILLS AND EXAM RESULTS THAT REFLECT THAT. IT GIVES ME IMMENSE SATISFACTION THAT I HAVE BEEN THE INFLUENCE THAT HELPED THEM ACHIEVE THIS.

Tutoring Experience

I SPENT A COUPLE OF YEARS TEACHING AFTER MY INITIAL TEACHER TRAINING. AFTER THAT I FOUND THAT BEING A PERSONAL TUTOR WAS MORE REWARDING AND SATISFYING. IT GAVE ME THE CHANCE TO TEACH THE SKILLS I HAD LEARNT, GIVING PUPILS CONFIDENCE IN MATHS, SOMETHING A LOT OF PUPILS LACK. I FOUND THAT BECAUSE I HAD STRUGGLED IN CERTAIN AREAS IN MATHS BEFORE BECOMING COMPETENT, I COULD UNDERSTAND WHEN MY PUPILS HIT THE SAME BARRIERS AND WAS ABLE TO HELP THEM THROUGH IT.

Tutoring Approach

I HAVE A FLEXIBLE APPROACH TO TUTORING, ADAPTING MY TEACHING AND TEACHING MATERIAL TO MATCH THE PUPIL'S NEEDS. I KEEP UP TO DATE WITH SYLLABUSES AND PROVIDE UP TO DATE EXAM PAPERS AND MATERIAL DURING APPROACHING EXAMS. WORKING THROUGH THE SYLLABUS DURING THE YEAR, MATCHING THE SUBJECTS THE SCHOOLS ARE TEACHING AND ALSO TEACHING APPROACHING ONES IN READINESS.COMBINING THIS WITH REVISION ON PROBLEM AREAS THAT THE PUPIL OR I HAS IDENTIFIED.
