Personal Description:

I am a friendly and enthusiastic History graduate from Cambridge University, and have been teaching Engish in Charter Academy for three years. I entered teaching through the prestigious
Teach First Leadership Developnent Programme and received a PGCE from Canterbury Christ Church University.

I have always had a great passion for literary subjects especially History, English and Religious Studies. It would be a great pleasure for me to help people in their study of these areas, regardless of their age or ability.

I also really enjoy building relationships with people. I find youth work particularly fulfilling and have led clubs in Northern Ireland, Moldova and Hong Kong.

Please find my qualifications below:

Cambridge University: BA History (2:1)

A Levels: English Literature (A) History (A*) Religious Studies (A*)

Canterbury Christ Church University - PGCE.

Tutoring Experience:

I am currently teaching English and English Literature at Great Yarmouth Charter Academy. I am experienced at teaching pupils from a range of abilities.

I have tutored students for GCSE and A level History and English Literature. All of them made good progress through our sessions.

Tutoring Approach:

What I offer:
Excellent subject knowledge - I rigorously ensure that I have mastered every topic that I teach.

Excellent resources - I provide my students with helpful booklets and sample essays that I have written myself.

My approach:
I take a relational, flexible and dedicated approach to tutoring. Let me explain…

1. Flexibility

In my initial session I seek to understand what areas of the tutee’s course they require support in. I then seek to tailor the tutoring sessions to meet these needs. I recognise that people can request tutors for a variety of reasons. It may be for support in writing coursework, some last-minute advice before an exam, or a long-term commitment throughout the course of studying a curriculum. I am happy to provide help for my tutees in all of these situations.

2. Relational

I also believe in a highly relational style of tutoring. This form of teaching works most successfully when focused around discussion. As well as explaining the material to my tutees, I also seek to listen carefully to their thoughts and ideas. In addition, I also take a style of teaching that is friendly, and uncritical, offering plenty of encouragement to my tutees!

3. Dedicated

I am dedicated to providing a positive and helpful learning experience for my tutees. I am punctual and prepare material thoroughly for each session. In addition, I am also committed to meeting the changing needs of my tutees and will do my utmost to secure success in their study.
