Personal Description:

I am an approachable and confident tutor with a passion for helping students to improve their knowledge and develop confidence in the subject. I believe that learning should be a pleasant and enjoyable experience. I try to engage with students and adapt my teaching to their interests and goals. I enjoy working with students to build and develop their confidence within a subject and helping them to prepare for assessments and exams.

Throughout my life I have enjoyed education and believe knowledge is the key to success. I am constantly learning new skills and am currently undertaking a PhD. I feel many students are let down by teachers that are uninspiring and lack a passion for their subject which leaves students unengaged and struggling. However, if these students are given an opportunity to discuss their thoughts and ideas in a one to one session they can develop an interest in a subject and see the importance and relevance of a topic.

I completed the PGCE in Further Education at the University of Wales, Newport. Since completing the course I have worked as a supply teacher and private tutor. I enjoy private tutoring as it gives me the opportunity to tailor my methods to the individual and focus on an individual as opposed to a large class.

Tutoring Experience:

Since completing the PGCE qualification I have taught numerous students on a one to one basis. These students have all improved their grades and go on to achieve excellent exam results.

I have taught in numerous educational settings such as secondary schools, colleges and universities. I have taught Psychology on an Access to Humanities course to classes ranging from age 16 to mature adults. I have also taught on the Welsh Baccalaureate (Foundation and Intermediate) which focuses on key skills and improving general knowledge. While working with various supply agencies I have taught most subjects but prefer to focus on English, Science (including Psychology) and Maths. I have also held one to one sessions within colleges to support struggling students.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring is friendly and laid back and generally student led. I establish what their current strengths and weaknesses are and tailor my approach to their learning needs while taking into account what they are looking to achieve. I regularly monitor and revise the targets I set with the student. I tailor my approach to the student and differentiate work set and adapt my teaching style accordingly. I believe one to one tutoring should be a pleasant experience and offers a student the chance to ask as many questions as they need without the pressure of a classroom environment.
