This is how 3 referees rated Sarah:
Media / Communication Studies
I am a qualified teacher with 6 years experience in schools and 3 years experience of teaching English and Media in secondary schools. I have a passion for working in education and have dedicated my professional career to teaching and learning. The subject of my initial degree means that I have a broad range of subject knowledge added on to my experience of teaching English and Media form KS3 to KS5. I have been CRB checked for my current job and can provide references on request.
I am a qualified teacher of English and Media, who has worked in secondary schools in Nottingham for 4 years. I have taught English and Media to KS3, GCSE and A Level standard and have worked to the specifications of different exam boards such as Edexcel, AQA and WJEC. I have held the position of Head of Key Stage 3; therefore have a thorough working knowledge of the current National Curriculum and GCSE requirements. Both the schools in which I have worked as a qualified teacher have been rated 'outstanding' by Ofsted and so I am used to delivering consistently high quality teaching and learning experiences.
I have experience in developing learning strategies through frequently planning and creating my own schemes of work, which have been used by the departments in which I have worked. I have created schemes of work for Key Stage 3 and 4 English, as well as planning Key Stage 5 Literature, GCSE media and Key Stage 3 drama lessons.
My approach to tutoring looks to promote independent enquiry for all my students. I believe that it is my job to assist my pupils’ learning experiences, so they can go on to achieve their individual potential. I seek to enable pupils to become semi- autonomous explorers of their own education. To enable this, I believe it is highly important to tailor learning plans to the needs of the individual, in order to both engage their interest and develop their ability accordingly. As a result, I enable effective teaching which both challenges and interests my pupils.
