I am a self motivated person who enjoys working with children of all genders, ages and backgrounds.I believe children are the future, therefore the personal and educational development of children I would maintain to be especially important. Over two years ago I completed a Bachelors of Science degree with honours in Psychology at Kingston University; where I obtained a first class.
I have over five years of experience working with young people in education. This includes a track record of continually improving self-esteem, academic grades, confidence and behaviour amongst youth in various educational settings. This is also enhanced by over two years experience successfully creating and implementing personal development workshops as well as behavioural workshops for teenagers.
I thrive under pressure and I am happy to accept any new challenges. I am easy to get along with and have excellent communication skills.I am also punctual and reliable. Through the experience I have gained from my jobs I have gained excellent communication skills which I think is a characteristic essential, for a job which involves working with children. Moreover I am a friendly outgoing person who gets on with people well, which I think is vital in a job where I would be interacting with parents and pupils. My experience to date has given me a better understanding of children and young people’s needs and my drive and ambition would ensure I would be a great tutor for your child!
I am currently an assistant director for a maths and English tuition centre.I however, have various experience within the educational field. For example, I have worked in a secondary school as an academic mentor. My role was to improve grades and behaviour. During the Summer of 2014 I was an English teacher in Cerdanya which is located in Spain. I was responsible for two classes of 12 children. I had to plan lessons which included a vocabulary and grammar point which would challenge the children. Additionally I was expected to mark classwork as well as writing exams and reports.
I have also been a private tutor for psychology, English literature and ethics and philosophy ; this allowed me to see the personal and educational development of several pupils. One pupil in particular I tutored, had no self confidence and doubted her abilities. By simply supporting her for eight months, I inspired, motivated and empowered her to do well which was reflected in her examination results. She went from getting a F in her mock to obtaining an A* in her GCSE Religious Studies and English Literature exam. The lowest grade any of my GCSE and A- level students have achieved is a B, and the lowest grade my university students have achieved is a 2:1 classification.
My approach to personal tuition encompasses a range of strategies, but above all I aim to provide you with a tailored programme that is best suited to your child's individual needs. I always teach in a way that enables the tutee to learn in a fun and interactive manner, whilst also stimulating their mind and making sure they achieve their potential. I would provide assistance across the full spectrum of age and ability, from those facing particular challenges with their learning to assisting gifted students seeking to extend their studies. I have worked with children who have varying abilities (gifted and talented, autism, dyslexia, sight problems and English as an additional language).
