Personal Description:

I am a nanny, audio transcriber and tutor, and I love the flexibility, variety and scope for meeting new people that these jobs provide. My belief is that everyone is born able to learn and discover, and everyone has value and something to offer the world. I am studying for a MSc in Child Welfare and Wellbeing, which is contributing to my understanding of cognitive development and how children learn, and is also very interesting!

Tutoring Experience:

For three years I taught a boy from South Korea English as a foreign language. He began studying with me after moving to the UK and barely speaking any English, but very quickly became fluent and showed a great aptitude for spelling. We moved from reading simple fairy tales to in-depth study of grammar, analysis of text and writing an extended story for National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). When he returned to South Korea I continued to support him in maintaining his English via Skype lessons, and his English teacher at school commented that his grammar was excellent and far better than was usual for a child of his age.

I have previously worked as a tutor teaching GCSE German. Whilst working as an au pair in Paris I helped my 12 year old and 9 year old charges with their homework, and also informally taught the 4 and 6 year olds about a variety of topics, particularly natural science.

At present I am tutoring a 7 year old girl in Maths, using hands-on manipulatives and the Life of Fred books to help her understand the real-life application of numbers. I am also tutoring a 9 year old boy in Maths and English, using Khan Academy to reinforce his understanding of mathematical concepts. He is writing an adventure story, around which our discussions of literary techniques, grammar and the function of writing centre. In addition I am tutoring a teenage girl in GCSE English, focusing on gaining a competent understanding of the set texts and improving her literary critiquing.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that the most important thing anyone can learn is how to learn independently. My aim is to give my students the tools and the motivation to study for themselves, by inspiring a passion for knowledge and the confidence to learn new things.

Everyone is different and no two people learn in exactly the same way. I try to identify my student's strengths and build on these, tailoring my approach to suit their learning style. I draw on a range of resources, from videos and websites to books and worksheets, sometimes custom-made for my student. Events and special occasions can provide excellent starting points for learning more about a topic, and I'm always on the lookout for new ideas and tools to help me improve my tutoring.
