This is how a referee rated Sarah:
I am a recent graduate of History with a passion for teaching. I love my subject and know my topics
very well and love the idea of being to share this passion with other pupils. I have an excellent
knowledge of a wide range of topics including many within the current GCSE curriculum such as
Russian history from Peter the Great until the present day, the World Wars and American history
from the 1920’s onwards and many more. I have mentored students before and have helped
them with regards to essay structure, exam technique and just general help with source work,
historiography and gaining more knowledge and understanding of topics. I have an excellent
academic record and would like to help other students achieve the best results they possibly can as
I was a mentor for students during my time at University which focused on History topics they would struggle with, exam techniques and essay structures which involved working very closely with my teachers and lecturers. I have not currently got any qualifications for teaching but it is something I am very much interested in and will be pursuing in the near future once I have gained some more experience via private tuition and mentoring.
My approach to tutoring is very much based around the student. If they are a visual learner and find it hard to focus on a more lecture based lesson, I try to incorporate this into the lesson and the same goes for if they are kinetic or audio learners. I understand that students find it hard to make their voices heard when class sizes are getting bigger and bigger and many lack the confidence to voice their shortcomings in front of a whole class as well. I try to make the student feel like their needs are being met, whatever they are, and tailor my teaching ability to match this.
