Personal Description:

I am 24 years old and living in South West London. I have recently completed a CELTA course in Prague, but while I have enjoyed the experience of teaching, I have decided that my strength lie more in giving students one to one guidance than in teaching groups. I learnt a lot on the course about how to go about teaching English, and found what I learnt about phonetics and grammar fascinating. I would greatly enjoy tutoring anyone interested in making progress with their English.

I have always enjoyed maths (which makes me something of a rarity!) and as a classroom assistant I spent one hour a day assisting weaker students in this subject. I found it very rewarding helping these students, particularly when they made progress and enjoyed lessons.

For my A Levels and my degree I focused on subjects within the realms of humanities and the social sciences (philosophy, politics, history). While I have never taught these subjects, I have a great deal of knowledge in these areas and lots of experience of using the types of skills which they require (critical, thinking, objective analysis, writing a persuasive argument.) I would greatly enjoy helping learners in these areas, and think i could do so effectively.

Tutoring Experience:

I have recently completed a CELTA 5 course, which included over 6 hours of assessed teaching. I worked as a classroom assistant at Ibstock Place School from the 24th April 2017 to the 6th July 2018. I mainly worked with year 4's (8-9 year olds) but also worked substantially with other year groups in the primary school. My main role was to assist weaker students, particularly those with reading difficulties, and students who struggled with Maths and English.

Tutoring Approach:

I think it is important to try and elicit answers from students, as opposed to just giving them the answer, when they don't understand something. This helps students to truly understand what they are learning. It is also very important to be patient and encouraging with students, to always make them feel as if the answer is within their grasp and that they are making good progress.
