I'm currently a final year undergraduate studying Law (European and International) at the Univeristy of Sheffield. My grades average a high 2:1.
I achieved 12 A*s and an A at GCSE, and A*AB at A-Level.
I'm looking forward to being able to share my experience and understanding with others.
I set up and ran a Book Club for the younger year groups in my school whilst at Sixth Form. I've also held positions as a form mentor for Year 7s and a subject prefect for English Literature. These roles have all involved me working closely with younger students in a way which enables them to achieve their personal and academic aims.
I have also participated in the Tutor for Change scheme, which involves tutoring English to students in local secondary schools, and I am part of the mentoring scheme at my university, which involves supporting first year students in their transition to university life.
Whilst on my year abroad in Germany, I provided childcare for three young German children (aged between 3 and 8), helping to develop their English language-speaking skills.
For me, a tutor should be a friendly and approachable support mechanism, who not only teaches their students the answers to questions, but more importantly how to answer questions. Tutoring shouldn't just involve the sharing and recital of facts, but a gradual development of the student's ability to learn for themselves. In this way, they are far better equipped to achieve their goals in education.
