This is how 3 referees rated Rowena:
I am a 34 year old teacher and freelance trainer living and working in Brighton after a number of years working overseas.
I have a First Class BA in History and Sociology, a Masters in History and am an experienced qualified secondary school teacher.
As well as teaching, I have worked with Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) on education projects in Tanzania and have experience of working with a diverse range of people of all ages, within both the public and private sectors.
I additionally hold a counselling skills qualification.
I am passionate about my subject and about learning. Outside of my work, I love to travel, run, read and spend time outdoors.
I hold proof of a DBS check and am registered with the online update service.
I am a friendly and passionate teacher with ten years' experience as a qualified secondary school teacher. I have taught History as a primary subject, with Geography, PSHE, Leisure and Tourism and Environmental Science as secondary subjects. I have a very strong track record of GCSE results, with students reaching and often exceeding their target grades, as well as good progress for students at Key Stage 3.
Over a number of years, I have built positive and constructive relationships with my students, helping them to develop in confidence and capabilities. I give constructive verbal and written feedback, enabling students to develop their knowledge and understanding in conjunction with their analytical written work. I have supported a number of students in 1:1 additional support, helping them towards achieving their KS3 or GCSE targets.
I currently work as a freelance trainer for a UK-based international development organisation and previously worked as trainer with Voluntary Service Overseas VSO on in-country training. I have also worked as a trainer within the private sector, including a private construction-based firm. I additionally hold a TEFL qualification.
I believe in building positive relationships and a safe space for students to learn. Understanding that every person is different, I respond to the needs of the individual, catering my approach to suit their learning styles. I work hard to make learning accessible for students and engage them in a way that empowers them to ultimately take control of their own learning.
I believe strongly in a holistic approach to learning, and the importance of the development of a resilient and 'positive mindset' approach in conjunction with the specific subject learning.
My work with previous students has included introducing calming and confidence-building techniques, as well as more subject-related strategies
