Information About Daisey - Lewisham tutor
This is how 3 referees rated Daisey:
I am an articulate, engaging Cambridge graduate with a strong academic record and lots of tips and tricks to impart to students of all ages!
My particular strengths include creative and critical thinking, literary analysis, a logical mind and a sophisticated writing style - all of which makes me sound rather dry, but really I am just a wordy, friendly and funny Classicist who likes grammar, stories and puzzles. I can be relied upon to turn up on time and ready for anything. I enjoy spending time with young people and working out the best ways to help them achieve their goals.
I do have high standards, but that's just because I care!
Previous credits include acting in a German language production of Der Reigen, designing costumes a Roman tragedy about the death of Cicero and Company Stage Manager for the 2016 Cambridge Greek Play. I also do freelance admin work for a poetry performance charity, occasionally script supervise for short films in Ancient Greek and bake.
Even though they say never to work with children and animals, I spent over ten years working at a riding stables, where I taught horse care and riding to all ages in all weathers. As such I am used to sharing and explaining specialised knowledge to a wide age range in a fun and accessible manner, and adapting my teaching style to individuals and challenging circumstances.
During school I also tutored GCSE Latin, at the request of the head of department, and supported the Junior UKMT Maths Challenge team. In sixth form, I set up and ran a lunchtime German club for lower-school students; my aim was to encourage the adoption of the language at GCSE, through games, exercises and multimedia. I produced my own notes and materials for the club.
I will respect learners' different styles, personalities and preferences, working together with them to establish clear goals and an approach to the subject that is tailored to what they want and need, whether that is specific content or general skills and understanding.
In essay subjects, I will encourage them to explore their own ideas, incorporate these into the framework laid out by the exam boards and express them in clear and correct written language.
In maths and languages, I will focus on cementing basic components, taking time to breakdown and explain problem areas and build confidence, all with patience, understanding and a smile!
Above all, I will use my creativity, imagination and experience to make sure learners get to enjoy their subject and experience the satisfaction of excelling at it.
