I have a gentle, cheerful nature and really enjoy helping others which is why I have decided to work as a tutor while I volunteer part time with an environmental education charity. I have chosen to tutor maths, a subject in which I achieved an A at A-level, because I feel that it is a subject that, with the right teaching methods, doesn't need to be one one that students fear. I enjoy travelling and discovering other cultures and in my free time I love to get out and explore the Scottish countryside, from walking in the Pentland Hills to venturing further afield to the Highlands.
I have a Celta teaching qualification and after graduating I spent a year working as a ‘Lectrice’ (English teacher) at l’Université de Haute-Alsace in Mulhouse, France. As a member of the university’s English department I was in charge of teaching English Oral classes to all undergraduate students, a role which involved designing and implementing the syllabus for the year. I really enjoyed seeing how the classes helped build students’ language skills, enabling them to grow in confidence and put their English language skills to use in other areas of their degree.
I believe that it is important to understand each individual’s motivations and reasons for looking for extra tuition so that they get the most out of each lesson. I am creative with my lesson ideas in order to bring the subject alive and will tailor each lesson to the student's needs.
