I’m 18 years of age. I was born in London and went to Mossbourne Community Academy for my GCSE's and A-Levels.
I am presently a first-year student studying History at Cardiff University. I have experienced background in politics. I am a leader with the scouts association and I am dyslexic so I understand how difficult essays and the exam requirements can be for dyslexic students.
I have no official teaching experience. However, through my work with the scouts association, I have worked with children as young as 7 years of age up to 16 years old. Through that, I have learned different ways in which things can be explained and how to different people if you explain or go through things in a particular way they understand it but in other ways they don't.
During my GCSE's and A-levels I was tutored and from that experience, I have learned methods which I could use to approach learning and particular problems students may have with exams and other issues.
During my time in sixth form, I had provided support to Year 11, 12 and 13 students with revision techniques, essay structures as well as exam and coursework.
My method of approach is to build a friendly relationship with those that I will be tutoring, asking them to talk to me about what they think we need to work on most and looking at any work they give back to me as a means of determining what I think we should focus on. Then through that reaching an agreement on what we both would be usefully for them.
Whilst having a friendly relationship with my students I will be firm that it is important that we look to get on with the work whilst also having fun and taking breaks from time to time depending on the length of the session.
