Information About Rebecca - York tutor
Craft and Design
I am from Germany and have been living in the UK since 0ct 2010. I am a qualified teacher for Special Needs. In Germany I worked in a school for physically handicaped pupils with learning disabilities for 9 years. In 2002 I went to Edinburgh for one year and worked there supporting adults with learning disabilities to be able to live an independent life. During my studying time I also worked as a tutor.
I am a very creative person with a great passion for nature, music and crafts. I tought myself knitting and crocheting when I was 9 and developed my skills ever since. I play violin, guitar and a bit of piano. Also I create pictures from materials I find in nature. For my work in school I often created my own learning materials or adapted existing materials to meet the individual needs of the pupils.
I also completed trainings in different short time therapy methods like hypnosis, EFT and NLP.
I recently had to do a CRB check for my work as a carer, I also have an assessment report from my headmaster in Germany. As I don't live in my own home at the moment I can't tutor from home, but I am happy to drive to my tutees.
In Germany I taught German, English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Biology, Art and Crafts and practical life and social skills in the classroom (age group 10 to 14, all pupils with learning disabilities). I always had to tailor a broad curriculum to meet the highly individual requirements and specific needs of children of different ages and very differing abilities. This often involved one to one tutoring.
I enjoy working and teaching one to one. For me it is important to create a trusting relationship with the learner as well as a personal and relaxed learning atmoshere. I differentiate my lessons based on the needs of the learner using different ways of learning as well as varied learning materials.
