Ballymena Tutor

I have 14 years' experience of working in education.

I am a very enthusiastic, hard-working and friendly Tutor. I spend alot of time preparing for specific learners' needs (finding the best resources for each pupil) and work with the Learner's strengths as well as developing their abilities. I am also great at building confidence and working on a wide range of work.

I look greatly look forward to working with more individuals and their families.

Lessons take part in a room in a community centre in Ballymena. I can also discuss travelling to other towns or cities, depending on public transport and the frequency of the lessons and duration of lessons i.e. I would prefer less lessons with more hours if I am going to travel to your nearest commercial area. Please also, let me know if you would consider online lessons as well as face to face and more homework and an extended marking service if you live further away.

I have a bank of resources: books; exam papers; learning resources; learning activities.

The first lesson needs to take place in a public place, due to internet security.

Tutoring Experience

Recently I have been working with 12 Learners from P2 up to year 14. Some Learners have special educational needs, some higher, all provided with opportunities to achieve their best.

I mostly have been tutoring in maths (2018) for transfer test and foundation g.c.s.e. maths (alot of experience). However, I have also worked with individuals on higher level maths (T3 and M4) and prepared an introduction to Further Maths g.c.s.e. I have also recent experience in tutoring Double Award Chemistry g.c.s.e. Currently, I am also currently working with an individual with autism.

I achieved an A grade at Maths g.c.s.e. higher, an A grade at Chemistry triple award higher g.c.s.e. and have A-level Chemistry.

I can also accommodate the preparation of new subjects and am confident in this area.

I am currently studying maths and french (2018).

Tutoring Approach

I am very good at motivating Learners. I vary the lesson and content for the best results.

Please be advised that I would need time to prepare for lessons so please, if you are in contact with me, provide me with an idea of when you would like the first lesson to take place and the subject code from the ccearewardinglearningwebsite. If you don't have this information it is no trouble for me to bring a range of resources.

Looking forward to working with more individuals and their families.
