English (Foreign Language)
I am a former Head of Department with a passion for learning and a broad range of interests. I graduated from the University of Cambridge with a degree in English in 2011, and spent the following year travelling in Croatia, Poland, and Ukraine before returning to the UK in 2013. Since then I have lived and taught in various parts of the country including Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester, and Sheffield, before recently moving to London to pursue a Master's Degree in Contemporary Literature and Culture.
My most recent teaching post has been Head of Mathematics at an academy in South Yorkshire, where GCSE grades are predicted to reach a record high this summer. I have been teaching Mathematics for five years, and before that spent a year teaching English as a Foreign Language in Ukraine. I have six years' experience tutoring students one-on-one, as well as via **Contact Detail Removed** and WhatsApp, and this has ranged from helping adults practise their conversational English in Ukraine, to preparing Year 11 students for their GCSEs in the UK.
I draw from a variety of online and to-hand resources, adapting my approach according to each individual student's needs. I ask questions more often than I give answers, which encourages students to think for themselves rather than relying upon an external source of knowledge. In this way, students are better prepared to ask themselves the right questions when confronted with a problem or text in exams, and become more independent thinkers.
