Laura

Saltburn-by-the-Sea Tutor

I thoroughly enjoy supporting students in becoming confident individuals and finding their own love for learning. I have taught in London, Thailand and the North East of England. I am constantly expanding my own knowledge and experiences within education. For example, my most recent experiences include teaching yoga to children, studying Mindfulness and continuous research of various political and sociological theories.

Tutoring Experience

I have over ten years of teaching experience, predominantly in A-Level Sociology and Government and Politics. During that time I have worked with a diverse range of students, each with specific individual learning needs. I also work as an examiner for A-Level Government and Politics and A-Level Sociology which has provided me with essential knowledge and understanding of assessment criteria. I have experience teaching Primary school children especially in KS1 SATS preparation and assessment, along with Maths and Science GCSEs.
From working in various educational institutions and across all key stages for example as a Primary teacher, A-Level History teacher I am extremely competent in understanding the curriculum requirements and providing tuition across a range of subjects and age ranges.
I also have a qualification in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and experience teaching English as a Foreign Language in Thailand in a Primary school and a local Temple and within various local councils in the North East to adult learners.

Tutoring Approach

My teaching approach is focused on three key areas: 1. Discussion based learning methods 2. Emphasis on how to meet the written exam criteria 3. Relating theory to everyday situations. I am flexible and able to adapt to meet the needs of students. My ability to successfully relate to students creating a safe and positive learning environment has been noted continuously throughout my career. This stems from my belief in supporting students to develop their confidence and higher order thinking skills.

One-to-one and group tutoring available, price negotiable.
