Personal Description:

I'm a 37 year old male who lives in Belper, Derbyshire with my wife and 2 children. Having worked in the insurance, banking and utilities industry for over 15 years I embarked on a career change on turning 30. I enrolled in an access course (evenings) prior to starting my degree in which I studies, History, Biology, Philosophy and Religion. On completing this I started my degree whilst also remaining in my position at Severn Trent Water. I obtained a 2:1 in History and Education and following a year break, began my Primary PGCE.I enjoy all sports and reading and recognise the importance of having an outstanding education in order to provide opportunities as children progress through their schooling and into the workforce.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught across both KS1 and KS2, although for the last 3 years I have taught KS2 children. I have worked in a range of schools, from small village schools where I taught years 2 - 6 in one class to large schools in inner city areas. In my current role I am teaching on the outskirts of Derby in an area of significant economic problems which provides challenges of all kinds and has helped hone my skills to ensure I can make learning accessible to all children, regardless of ability. This has been a challenge in classes of 30+ but this experience will be invaluable when tutoring as the skills and strategies can be applied to help individual children.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to have an environment where children are happy, confident and secure enough to be creative and take risks in their learning, with myself as facilitator to this. My own belief is that children should not merely be passive recipients of learning but active partners and initiators of it. Education to me is underpinned by ‘experience’ and ‘investigation’ whereby outcomes are uncertain. This creative approach is incorporated into my planning and teaching, with teacher/pupil collaboration at the heart of my learning philosophy which has the overall aim of children becoming independent learners. I always use a range of teaching and learning strategies to ensure learning is accessible to all ability levels.
