Personal Description:

I currently work as a full time English Secondary School Teacher having completed my PGCE in Secondary English at the University of Exeter. Previous to that I studied for my English degree where I also studied Education as a secondary subject. Over the last 5 years I have spent much of my time in and out of schools working in a variety of lessons helping out as a teaching assistant and providing revision and expert teaching sessions.

I have found that education, in all walks of life, is the key to unlocking doors and widening ones horizons. I am passionate about learning and I wish to inspire the same love in all those I teach.

Tutoring Experience:

Currrently I am a full time English teacher at a local secondary school in Torbay. Last year I undertook placements in a variety of Secondary Schools in South Devon where I was gaining evidence and experience for the award of a PGCE. Also as part of the course I was expected to run peer teaching sessions and 'expert' teaching sessions at the university.
Previously I have also worked in a variety of schools both Primary and Secondary as a voluntary teaching assistant. My role and responsibilities included preparing resources for lessons, helping students with tasks that were set and ensuring they understood exactly what was expected of them. I was also asked to prepare revision sessions for students preparing for GCSE and A Level English and Law and hold sessions at lunchtimes for students.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is simple it has to be engaging. The two most important aspects with learning and teaching is 'What do I want a student to learn?' and "How am I going to get the student to learn it based on their individual way of learning?'. All my sessions will be sequenced into a scheme of work with the long term aim and focus being at the centre of each session. I use a variety of methods and activities that are both innovative, creative and fun which aims to boost confidence and enhance learning.
