Personal Description:

I currently work as a Learning Support Assistant in a local primary school. My main role is to support a ten year old girl with severe autism. I also work with on intervention projects with students who are either struggling or exceeding against current curriculum standards.

During certain evenings I work as a Tutor for **Contact Detail Removed** where I help children between the ages of 4 and 15 with their maths and english. I support these children within small groups and one-to-one. I also run specialised workshops such as phonics and the Eleven-plus.

I also tutor children on a private one-to-one basis for their Eleven-plus exams. I make thorough plans, produce recap exercises and use various resources to reinforce their learning.

I aspire to shortly begin my teaching training in order to become a Primary School teacher.
I hold a 2.1 degree in Criminology. I have also studied Law, Psychology and Religious Studies at A-level standard. I have achieved grade B in Maths and English GCSE.
I have recently worked as a Communications Officer for the Police and volunteer as a Special Constable. I therefore, have excellent interpersonal skills where I converse with both children and adults at the most fragile time of their lives.
I am very studious and have a real passion for education. I enjoy creating lesson plans and working on a one-to-one basis to assist in a child's academic learning.

Tutoring Experience:

I currently work as a Tutor for **Contact Detail Removed**. I help children between the ages of four and fifteen with their maths and english. I also help year five children in their academic studies within my school role.
I have previously volunteered as an assistant in Children's liturgy classes in my local church. I managed a class of four to ten year olds. I would create classroom plans where the lessons would be challenging, yet engaging and fun. I would interpret the Bible to the children's understanding and use creative methods to assist with their education.
I have taught young children basic maths and english while their parents have attended ante-natal twins classes. I would computing programmes to teach basic addition, subtraction and the time tables.
While at University, I would tutor student's whose first language was not english. I would proofread their assignments and provide assistance with spelling and grammar.

Tutoring Approach:

My ultimate aim throughout my teaching career is to enable the student to become an independent learner with their own opinions on multiple topics. I will therefore, ask open questions throughout our lessons to encourage them to find the answers themselves. I will only prompt the student towards the correct answer and will never spoon-feed. I will set assignments which will encourage the student to voice their own opinion on the topic and therefore, raise their self-confidence in their academic abilities.
I will use frequent pauses throughout our lessons to ensure the student's understanding is up-to-date and that they are not losing concentration. Within these pauses, I will ask the student to summarise the topic. I will provide a problem to solve, or test their knowledge with a fun quiz or game.
I will use engaging videos, powerpoint presentations and visual aids to assist in the retention of the information.
I will prompt the student to engage in critical thinking by researching the source of information, such as authors and historical figures. By making an intellectual connection to the source, I believe they will retain the information easier and create their own opinions and thus, build their self-confidence.
Throughout our lessons, I will help the student to create their own scrap book with their own ideas to prompt critical thinking. I will regularly ask the student and their parents for feedback on my tutoring methods to ensure we are making the most of our time and resources.
