Personal Description:

Hi! I am a 25 year old Teacher of both GCSE and A level Law at St Mary's Catholic High School, Tyldesley. I am a Law Graduate from the University of Liverpool gaining a 2:1 LLB Law degree in 2007. This was followed by a Post Graduate Certifcate of Education in Citizenship. I am now in my third year as a teacher and have recently been appointed as Lead teacher in Personalised Learning a role which I am very excited to take on board.

I would describe myself as very committed and dedicated to all aspects in my life and give everything 100%. On a personal level, I have a bubbly personality and have many interests such as running and dancing. During my free time I am also an adult leader at a local Youth club.

Tutoring Experience:

During my time at university I was President of the Legal Society and a mentor to younger students studying law. This involved being available to discuss problems and many of these related to study issues and the correct approach to study.

Since becoming part of the teaching staff at St Mary’s, I have gained vast experience and responsibility as their only Law teacher. This has involved development of appropriate syllabuses, the introduction of a Law GCSE, resources, schemes of work, coordination of assessment and setting achievable targets for students. As well as enhancing my organisational and planning skills, this task enabled me to teach aspects of Law creatively using innovative teaching methods and activities. I really enjoyed teaching my schemes of work and I was very pleased that pupils were both enthused and inspired by all the themes covered.

During a recent Ofsted inspection I was observed and and judged as ‘Outstanding’ according to their criteria and even mentioned in the school’s Ofsted report! Hopefully this is a factor that contributed to obtaining a 100% pass rate at A level and all my students to date achieving or exceeding (in the majority of cases) their ALPs predicted grades.

As part of my PGCE I travelled to The Gambia where I was lucky enough to teach English for a small period of time, this was a very humbling experience.

Tutoring Approach:

So far with First Tutors I have tutored three tutees, all who have been very pleased with the tuition provided. One student got an A, one a B and the other is working towards her first round of exams.

I believe that every individual is unique and so my teaching approach will vary from student to student using visual, auditory and kinaesthetic learning techniques. I try to motivate students to aspire and achieve their best and provide a quality teaching environment where they can succeed by tailoring sessions around their areas of weakness.

Experiences from my own personal school life have shown me that a good teacher can offer more than just an education; they can act as a confidant, an adviser and a figure of creativity and in a lot of cases (such as my own) an inspiration. With this in mind it is important to be approachable so that the student feels comfortable in asking questions and building up their interest in the subject.
