I've always been a committed academic and have always taken education very seriously. I am an avid reader and student and do not consider anything beyond my purview, however I am most primarily interested (and educated) in the humanities. Within the humanities I have my specialisation (in the form of a degree) in philosophy, however I consider my aptitude with philosophy to have given me a more refined and greater understanding of the humanities in general. Literature, religion, the sciences, sociology, history, politics... all were included within my education for philosophy and I feel I have been given a brilliant framework by which to understand them all and to thus talk about, apply and therefore teach.
With me you can be assured that I will take you or your child's education very seriously because I have treated my own education with the utmost commitment. And it is because of this that I will always consider myself a student because there is always more to learn and more to refine; thus I will adapt to and adopt any teaching methods necessary to tutor you or your child in order to get you or them to the necessary standard.
I have just finished my PGCE course in Secondary RE and Philosophy and therefore have Qualified Teacher Status (though I will not formally graduate till July of this year due to my missing the January graduation period by a matter of days). I have been complimented on my engaging lesson planning and use of resources which I will endeavour to bring to your child when I tutor.
I have already tutored through First Tutors as I tutored 2 boys on their English Literature and Language GCSEs. I will be strong in teaching on any of the subjects I have a qualification in which are English Literature and Language; Philosophy; Religious Education and Classical Civilisation.
I have also have experience in helping run (with a close friend) the teaching programme Roundabout, a programme organised by the University of Sheffield to teach underprivileged youths philosophy.
My approach to tutoring will not be rigid in the sense of having a starkly set criteria for everyone. I pride myself on being able to adapt to different people's understanding of things and having the ability to suss out where people have gone wrong and, thus, where they need to improve.
I am very friendly and will endeavour to cultivate a familiar and enjoyable relationship with you or your child in order for there to be mutual trust and respect. This sort of context I find to be the most fruitful for learning. Equally however, as I mentioned above, I take education very seriously and will never let this approach jeopardise the rigour of my teaching. Therefore you can rest assured that your or your child's education, if trusted with me, will be in good hands.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I will be happy to explain or elaborate further on any of this and look forward to passing on my knowledge!
