I am a friendly and approachable person and have recently worked as a teaching assistant for Camborne Science and International Academy and Hayle Community School assisting secondary school students of varying abilities across all subjects. I have qualifications in preparing to teach adults (PTLLS) and teaching English as a foreign language to adults (CELTA) (at Nottingham Trent University). I have done both 'A' level Biology and 'A' level Chemistry and degree - level Biology and Chemistry courses myself as well as Level 2 Maths Functional Skills and G.C.E. maths. I play the piano, garden and go for walks with my family in my spare time.

Tutoring Experience

I have been a tutor in Maths, English and English as a Foreign Language with students through First Tutors for more than six years now and have helped several students to gain A - C grades in their GCSEs in Maths and English. I have also taught English as a Foreign Language to teenage and adult students of many nationalities and various levels at summer schools with Stafford House Study Holidays, SUL Language School and Bell English. As a Teaching Assistant, I have taught many subjects including maths and IT to 11 - 16 year old students in class and on a one to one basis and have gained great satisfaction from working with young people and adults, encouraging them to achieve their full potential. I have been a Sunday school teacher for over 15 years.

Tutoring Approach

The needs of the tutee will be the focus of our lessons. I would aim to have relaxed but hopefully high achieving sessions. I would aim to set homework and give feedback in the lessons. I would be happy to concentrate on areas of weakness and misunderstanding as requested by the tutee. All the time, I would aim to develop a tutee's confidence. I would be happy to do tuition at my own home or the tutee's.
